A LaPush woman has been sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to breaking into a Forks pizza shop and stealing a safe containing $7,000 in cash and checks in June.
18 year-old Sarah Ellisyn Burnside pled guilty to three counts stemming from a June 10 burglary at Pacific Pizza
Forks officers arrested Burnside and 24 year-old Tyeson Frank LaGambina for investigation of the burglary.
Burnside also told police she had driven a stolen Chevy Malibu – which was the Pizza delivery car – off a cliff near Sitkum-Sol Duc Road, about 2 miles east of U.S. Highway 101.
Police later found the car at the bottom of a 50-foot bluff.
Criminal charges were dropped against LaGambina after Burnside told Clallam County prosecuting attorneys she would not testify against him.
Clallam County Superior Court Judge Christopher Melly sentenced Burnside on Feb. 24 to six months in jail. She also must pay restitution, to be determined at an April 25 hearing.
Burnside remained in the Clallam County jail Tuesday.

The Makah Tribe is mourning the death of Richard Doc Daugherty, the WSU archeologist who uncovered Makah Tribal history from a buried village in Ozette.
Daugherty died of bone cancer Feb. 22 at his home near the WSU campus in Pullman.
He expected to spend a few months excavating Makah artifacts uncovered by a storm on the North Olympic Peninsula coast in 1970.
Instead, he spent 11 years at “the Pompeii of America,” one of the most well-known and nationally significant archaeological discoveries of the past century .
Although best known for his years of work on the Ozette village site, located on the coast just southwest of Neah Bay, Daugherty worked on dozens of excavations all over the Pacific Northwest.
He was 91.
