LOCKPORT – A Lockport burglar was ordered to state prison Tuesday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

Shawn K. Pittler, 24, of Chestnut Street, was sentenced to three to six years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to a charge of third-degree burglary for breaking into the Pirate’s Alley Tattoo Studio, 211 Chestnut St., on June 17, stealing tattooing equipment and a motor bike.

Earlier, Pittler served a year in state prison after an Allegany County burglary conviction in 2010, according to the state prison website.
