Dar­rell E. Dixon, who was caught while bur­glar­iz­ing a North Ton­awanda home Aug. 26, was sen­tenced Tues­day to 3½ to seven years in prison.

State Supreme Court Jus­tice Richard C. Kloch Sr. im­posed the max­i­mum sen­tence avail­able on Dixon, 46, of North Street, Buf­falo who didn’t wait to be in­dicted be­fore plead­ing guilty to third-de­gree bur­glary.

Ni­a­gara County As­sis­tant District At­tor­ney Ryan K. Parisi said a home­owner on Thomas Fox Drive West in the Wurl­itzer Park sub­di­vi­sion caught Dixon in the act of break­ing in.

Break-ins are noth­ing new for Dixon, who has been to state prison twice be­fore for Erie County bur­glar­ies. He served four years for a 1994 con­vic­tion and seven years for a 2001 con­vic­tion.
