Homeless Centralia Man Receives Prison Term for Theft by Deception

December 3, 2016

A 23-year-old homeless Centralia man has been sentenced to one year in prison after pleading guilty in Marion County Court to theft by deception.

Nathan Hale admitted to gaining control over fuel and general merchandise from the Fuel Vend convenience store in Centralia when using a Fuel Vend card without permission. As part of the sentence, Hale was ordered to make $746 restitution for fuel and other items taken from the store as well as pay court costs. He received credit for 88 days already served in the Marion County Jail waiting resolution of his case.

Hale was arrested in September after unsuccessfully fleeing on foot from a traffic stop in Sandoval. Hale had reportedly successfully escaped earlier when running from an attempted traffic stop in Centralia where he was also a passenger.
