LOCKPORT – A burglar who washed out of a court-supervised drug treatment program was sentenced Tuesday to a six-month tour in the state prison system’s boot camp-like “shock incarceration” program.

Joseph Light, 23, of Grauer Road, Town of Niagara, was sentenced by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas. He had pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary for the theft of four guns from a home on Buffalo Avenue in Niagara Falls July 1, 2009.

Light’s mother turned two of the stolen guns over to police last year, enabling them to crack what had been a cold case.
