A man left a Centralia restaurant on Saturday with $130 that wasn’t his, according to Centralia police.
Police are now looking for the man, described as white, who was last seen wearing a black jacket, a hat and camouflage-style pants, Sgt. Patricia Finch said Sunday.
Just before 5 p.m. Saturday, the man had spent $10 at Coconuts Island Grill in the 1200 block of Alder Street in Centralia. The server returned to give the man his change, but mistakenly gave him a separate amount of money that totaled $130.
Despite expecting a much smaller amount of change, police think the man knowingly accepted the larger amount and left the restaurant.
