PORT ANGELES — A man with an extensive criminal history in Clallam County has been sentenced to a little more than five years in state prison for his role in four crimes, including three burglaries, last summer.

Cody B. Runnion, 22, of Port Angeles was sentenced Wednesday to 63 months in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of second-degree burglary and one count each of residential burglary and taking a motor vehicle without permission, said John Troberg, deputy county prosecuting attorney.

This sentence will start after Runnion completes a previous 36-month prison term for six separate burglaries in 2010, Troberg said.

Runnion was released in May 2012 on community supervision as part of a drug treatment prison alternative but violated his supervision terms and must serve the remainder of his 36-month sentence, said Norah West, state Department of Corrections spokeswoman.

Runnion has about 1 years left on his 2010 sentence to serve before the 63-month sentence starts, West said.

Runnion was on the roster at the Clallam Bay Corrections Center as of Wednesday afternoon.

August entries

Wednesday’s sentencing stems from burglarizing the Hairmasters salon on Washington Street in Sequim on Aug. 24 and the Blue Mountain Animal Clinic in Agnew on Aug. 18, Troberg said.

On June 11, according to a Port Angeles police report filed in Clallam County Superior Court, Runnion was identified by family members and friends in the area of the burglary as the man who broke into a home on Ninth Street in Port Angeles and stole two safes.

Two days before, according to a Sequim police report, Runnion stole a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe from the parking lot of the Quality Inn motel in Sequim at about 6:30 a.m.

Runnion later was identified via video surveillance as driving into the Longhouse Market and Deli gas station in Blyn at about 6:50 a.m. in the Tahoe.
