HART — The man who broke into Hart High School last year the day after Christmas is facing new felony charges stemming from an alleged home invasion.

Korbin Cruz Garcia, 20, of 4820 E. Loop Rd., Hesperia, was arrested Tuesday, Jan. 12, by the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office for felonies of first-degree home invasion and felony firearm.

Garcia was convicted last year of breaking and entering with intent for his role in the high school break-in and sentenced to serve six months up front of a one-year discretionary jail sentence.

Garcia and two other suspects, one of whom was a juvenile, damaged a pop machine in the high school, trying gain access to the cash box. They also attempted to steal a big screen TV and a speaker, but were scared off by janitors. Photos of Garcia and one of the other suspects were captured by the school’s video surveillance cameras, which circulated through the media, resulting in the suspects being quickly apprehended.

A preliminary conference in 78th District Court is set for Jan. 25 at 3 p.m. for Garcia’s new criminal case.
