Sentencing for man involved in series of spa, salon burglaries

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An ex-con who admitted involvement in a series of burglaries at local day spas, salons and beauty supply businesses is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday at the downtown courthouse.

Bryon Upham, 35, is expected to receive a seven-year prison term, which will be served in local custody. He was arrested in November in connection with a crime spree that targeted 27 businesses, mostly in Hillcrest, Mission Hills and San Carlos, between April and October last year. Also arrested were 28-year-old Barron McNulty -- also an ex-con -- and Cierra Correo.

McNulty and Correo pleaded guilty in March to felony charges stemming from the crimes.

Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth Furnari said Upham and McNulty snatched expensive hair and skin products from the businesses, and Correo tried to sell them on to unwitting customers.

Upham, who was previously incarcerated for drug convictions, pleaded guilty to four counts of receiving stolen property and single counts each of burglary, possession of methamphetamine and conspiracy to possess stolen property.

McNulty pleaded guilty to four counts each of burglary and forgery as well as receiving stolen property and conspiracy to possess stolen property. The forgery counts had to do with stolen checks and using a credit card that didn't belong to him.

McNulty previously served time in prison for burglary and identity theft, Furnari said.

Correo, who the prosecutor said was Upham's girlfriend at the time of the burglaries, pleaded guilty to one count of receiving stolen property. She was sentenced earlier this month to 210 days in county jail.
