Nikita T. Jones of Lockport was sentenced to four to seven years in state prison Friday for three different crimes.

Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III ordered the Chapel Street man imprisoned for identity theft, burglary and sale of a controlled substance, all in the third degree.

Jones used a stolen credit card to make $198 in purchases at a Lockport convenience store Aug. 10. He broke into his grandmother's house on Chestnut Street in Lockport Aug. 22 in an effort to steal money.

As a result of those crimes, Jones was ousted from the court-supervised drug treatment program he entered after pleading guilty to selling heroin in March 2014.

"All of his crimes stem from his need for drugs," defense attorney Jenelle Messer said.
