A Clovis man police say they linked to more than a half dozen burglaries was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison, according to a release from District Attorney Matt Chandler.

Police said they caught Floyd Pete Gutierrez, 40, in the act of burglarizing the When You Have Everything Nail and Hair Salon in Clovis on Nov. 18, 2010, after he tripped an alarm.

During an ensuing investigation, police traced items found in Gutierrez’s truck to six burglaries, according to the release.

The release said Gutierrez was found to be a repeat offender by District Judge Teddy Hartley, enhancing his sentence to 10 years and another five years supervised probation once released from prison.
