2 Sentenced in Series of Hot Prowl Burglaries in Carmel Valley, Scripps Ranch

Two suspects have been sentenced in a series of hot prowl burglaries in Carmel Valley and Scripps Ranch as the victims were inside their homes. 

Antonio Kresic and Keith Lashaun Thomas previously pleaded guilty for their roles in at least nine burglaries, mostly in Scripps Ranch, which started on Sept. 27, 2015. 

A judge sentenced Kresic to nine years and eight months in prison; probation was denied. He was ordered to pay restitution to victims listed in the probation report.

Thomas' parents addressed the court during the sentencing Tuesday and requested probation. The judge stayed an eight year and four month prison sentence and granted probation for five years.

Thomas was ordered to pay restitution to the victims listed in the probation report, along with Kresic and the juvenile defendants. 

Two juveniles were also charged in connection with the crimes last year.
