A man accused of stealing $8,000 from a relative is wanted on a $25,000 warrant after failing to show up for his first court hearing in the case Tuesday.
Shane T. Bonagofski, 37, of Centralia, was charged Nov. 2 in Lewis County Superior Court and sent a summons to appear Tuesday for his preliminary hearing in the case.
On Tuesday, Bonagofski didn’t show, and Superior Court Judge Andrew Toynbee issued a $25,000 arrest warrant, as requested by the Lewis County Prosecutor’s Office.
According to court documents, in September, Centralia police received a report from a woman saying Bonagofski, a relative of hers, had taken her Home Depot credit card and racked up about $8,000 in charges.
When she learned of the balance, she canceled the card. Bonagofski did not have permission to use the card, she told police.
