HILLSBORO, Ore. -- The man known as "Moss Man" has a warrant out for his arrest after he failed to show up for his trial on Tuesday.

A Washington County judge issued a bench warrant for Gregory Liascos, 37, after he didn't show up for his first day of trial.  Jurors were sent home for the day, according to the Washington Co. Sheriff's Office.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff's office at 503-629-0111.

Liascos is suspected of breaking into the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks & Minerals in October 2010 while wearing a camouflage "ghillie" suit.  He was later found by a police dog.

He told KGW at the time that the episode was all a misunderstanding with his children over a Halloween costume. Police misinterpreted his get up and proximity to the museum, he said.
