A 28-year-old convicted burglar pleaded guilty Friday to vandalizing a religious preschool and was immediately sentenced to three years in jail.

Raul Felipe Moreno pleaded guilty to one felony count each of vandalism of religious property and burglary. A half-dozen other burglary counts, and one count each of attempted burglary and possession of methamphetamine to sell, were dismissed as part of the plea deal, according to court records.

Moreno’s targets included the Calvary Chapel preschool, where break-ins occurred last May 29 and June 22, and a number of other businesses and offices, according to court records.

The burglary spree began on May 29 and continued through July 28, according to court records, while the vandalism occurred on May 28.

Moreno pleaded guilty to burglary, grand theft and receiving stolen property in August 2018 and was sentenced to two years in jail.

He pleaded guilty to a felony burglary count, as well as misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest and possession of burglary tools, on Feb. 17, 2017, and was sentenced to 16 months in jail.

He also got a 16-month jail sentence after pleading guilty on Feb. 7, 2014, to receiving stolen property and grand theft, both felonies, as well as misdemeanor counts of possession of drugs, drug paraphernalia and burglary tools.
