** Pennsylvania man sentenced to jail time for stealing ambulance


** A Pennsylvania man from Kulpmont will be cooling his heals in prison for the next four years after being convicted of stealing an ambulance last October. That is the word from PennLive (John Beauge/June 12) which said Adam R. Zaharick, 30, was handed the sentence Monday. According to the news service, Zaharick made off with the EMS unit from outside the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. He then drove it to a pharmacy where he stole several things. Zaharick pleaded guilty but mentally ill on May 15th. The charges included robbery of a motor vehicle, burglary, and simple assault. Along with prison time, he has been tasked with paying $60,934 in restitution for damage done to the ambulance. Because Zaharick could not afford to post bail since his October 23rd arrest, he has been in custody since then. The sentence includes credit for 231 days jail time.
