Longview Man In Prison In Grape Juice Burglary

A drink of grape juice has cost a Longview man 20 years in prison. 37 year old Sherman Dixon was arrested by police in connection with an October 2002 burglary of the metropolitan community church in Longview.

Investigators say Dixon stole numerous items from the church, but stopped to take a drink of grape juice from the refrigerator. His fingerprints were found on the juice bottle.  He plead guilty to the crime Wednesday.

Dixon has 2 prior convictions.
