PORT ANGELES — A Forks man will spend no additional time in jail after he was sentenced last week for his role in a March trailer burglary in which police said a computer, cellphone, cash and the shoes off a man’s feet were stolen.

Joshua Allen Cabe, 26, was sentenced July 2 to 90 days in jail with 90 days’ credit for time served, according to Clallam County Superior Court documents.

He must also serve 12 months’ community custody under state Department of Corrections supervision and pay restitution to be set at an Aug. 29 hearing, according to court documents.

Cabe was one of two men who Port Angeles police said forced their way into the trailer of Daniel Joseph Jenkins, 21, at the Welcome Inn Trailer and RV Park, 1215 W. U.S. Highway 101, at about 12:07 a.m. March 18.

The trio allegedly attacked Jenkins and made off with his computer, cellphone, cash and shoes, among other items, police said.

Other proceedings

Ordez Eugene Kompkoff, 19, of Port Angeles pleaded guilty June 26 to one count each of second-degree burglary and first-degree theft.

He was sentenced to four months in jail with credit for 94 days served and the remaining 26 days converted to 208 hours of community service.

Zachary Michael Taylor, 20, of Port Angeles has been charged and pleaded not guilty to one count each of first-degree robbery, theft of a motor vehicle, unlawful imprisonment, fourth-degree assault and third-degree theft.

The July 14 trial date for Taylor, who remained in the county jail on $25,000 bond, is expected to be reset today.

The theft-of-a-motor-vehicle count stems from Taylor and Kompkoff allegedly taking the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta that Cabe had been driving March 18, police said in a report filed in Superior Court.

The car, which reportedly belonged to Cabe’s mother, was found later that day near the intersection of 11th and A streets, police said.

Jenkins was sentenced May 13 to 30 days in jail, converted to 240 hours of community service, after he pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault for hitting Taylor with a metal pipe the evening of March 18.

Police arrested Taylor on March 19 after he was discharged from Olympic Medical Center after treatment for a head wound.

Police arrested Cabe on March 20 and took Kompkoff into custody after he turned himself in March 21.
