Serial burglar gets sentenced to six years and eight months

EUREKA - A Eureka man arrested multiple times for burglary gets sentenced in court.

Nicholas Paul Boswell pled guilty to one count of first degree burglary and one count of second degree. He was sentenced to six years and eight months in jail.

The charges were for his involvement in two residential burglaries this past New Year’s morning when a resident helped take him into custody.

The convicted felon was arrested four times during the last three months for burglary, possession of tools for burglary and prowling.

Chief Andrew Mills weighed in on the sentencing saying that not only does the community take these offenses seriously, so do the police and courts. You can go to prison for burglary.
