An Allegheny County judge on Monday issued a warrant for the arrest of a Mt. Washington man charged with taking a car for a test drive and never returning it.

Common Pleas Judge Edward J. Borkowski issued the warrant for Jeffery James Yeargin, 36, for failing to show up to his non-jury trial on felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property. Borkowski also revoked Yeargin's $10,000 bail.

Yeargin is accused of taking a 2005 Mini Cooper for a test drive from Billco Motors along Route 19 in Pine on Jan. 16. Police in Cambridge, Ohio arrested Yeargin during a traffic stop in April. He was detained and later sent back to Allegheny County.
