“Porch pirate” case leads to prison for Eau Claire man

Prison time was ordered Monday for the so-called "porch pirate’, who police stole packages from area homes shortly after they were dropped off by delivery drivers.

Dowie Castillo, Eau Claire, was sentenced Monday to four and a half years in prison. The sentence included the thefts last December, and other charges of possessing meth, car theft, burglary, and identity theft.

After prison, Castillo will be on probation or extended supervision for seven years.
