(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A St. Joseph man was sentenced Friday to nine years in prison for burglarizing homes in a neighborhood.

Logan Tipton was charged with first-degree burglary.

According to prosecutors, Tipton was responsible for several home burglaries. Prosecutors said Tipton pulled a gun on a homeowner when confronted during one of the break-ins. He was also caught on video trying to break into another neighbor's house.

Tirpton claimed during a sentencing hearing that he never displayed a weapon during the burglary and that drug use caused him to mistakenly believe he was at his friend's house.

Tipton was arrested after a four hour standoff with police at a home on Angelique Street last December.

Officers were called to the home to investigate a burglary when they found Tipton carrying stolen items from another home he broke into in the same neighborhood.

This warm and persistent weather pattern begins to break down beyond Wednesday. There will be better storm chances in the forecast Thursday and Friday and even greater chances this weekend.
