William Patrick Weems, 35, pleaded guilty to one count each of residential burglary and possession of stolen property in Clallam County Superior Court.
He was sentenced Wednesday to 30¾ months in prison and 30¾ months in community custody, and must pay $1,200 in victim assessments and court fees, according to Superior Court documents.
The charges stem from a July 19 burglary reported at an unoccupied house along U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles between Dryke and Barr roads.
The burglary report triggered a four-hour manhunt for Weems in the Agnew area that ended with Weems being arrested near Bagley Creek Road after he was spotted as the passenger of a truck driving west on U.S. Highway 101.
The search involved State Patrol troopers, Border Patrol agents and a Coast Guard helicopter.
