A man accused of leading police in two states on a drug-fueled chase involving stolen police cars has been sentenced in an unrelated eastern Pennsylvania burglary.

The Express-Times said a Lehigh County judge Thursday went beyond the recommended sentencing guidelines for the August 2012 Macungie break-in after 25-year-old Blake Bills called the burglary victim's tearful court statement "dramatic" and "over the top."

The judge said he planned to sentence Bills to six to 14 months in prison but those comments changed his mind.

Bills was instead sentenced to serve 14 to five years in prison.
