A 24-year-old Citrus Heights man was sentenced Friday to 38 years and four months in prison for a burglary spree that ended last year.

On March 29, Levi Pierce pleaded no contest to 12 counts of burglary between November 2016 and February 2017, according to a Citrus Heights Police Department media release.

Pierce had originally been arrested on 14 counts of burglary and 11 attempted burglaries and was on probation for a 2014 burglary when he was booked in February 2017.

Pierce broke into at least a dozen homes near Calvary Cemetery and Lakeview Village Mobile Home Park in west Citrus Heights during his crime spree.

He often crept in through unlocked doors and windows while the occupants slept, and took small items and cash before fleeing.
