Glenshire prowler gets seven years

A prowler, convicted of attempted first-degree burglary, was sentenced to seven years in prison by a Nevada County Judge.

Judge C. Anders Holmer sentenced Jayson A. Maglaya, 24, on Jan. 14, after he was found guilty of entering an occupied home in Glenshire with intent to commit theft.

A jury heard the case in December and found Maglaya guilty.

On June 24, 2002, Paul Hogan was sleeping in his home when he heard a sliding glass door open, said Sgt. Dan Johnston of the Truckee Police Department.

Hogan gave chase and Maglaya jumped a fence and got away.

“Nothing was stolen in this case because he never completely got into the house,” Johnston said.

There had been three or four other “hot prowl” incidents in Glenshire around the same time.

Hot prowls are particularly dangerous because of the potential for confrontation and the unpredictable behavior of the suspect, he said.

“This is a guy who sneaks into people’s homes in the middle of the night when people are home,” Johnston said.

The attempted first-degree burglary charge, Maglaya’s second strike according to the California three strikes law, carried a three-year sentence, which was doubled due to a prior conviction.

A one-year enhancement was added to the sentence.

Maglaya was convicted in May 2001 of possession of stolen property and in March of 1997 of first-degree burglary.
