Revere man gets 10 years in theft

A Revere man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was convicted of breaking and entering while being a habitual offender, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan’s office. Patrick Wiswall, 41, was found guilty on Tuesday of breaking and entering in the daytime to commit a felony and larceny under $250, following a five-day trial at the Middlesex Superior Court, according to a statement from the district attorney’s office. Wiswall was arrested after an off-duty Medford police officer noticed a car circling his neighborhood, then park near another house. The officer saw Wiswall leave the car and return minutes later. After Wiswall left, the officer checked the house and found that it had been broken into and was missing several pieces of jewelry.
