HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — A man known as “Moss Man” failed to show up at his trial Tuesday in Hillsboro.

KGW reports (http://bit.ly/qzr31t) an arrest warrant has been issued for the 37-year-old Portland man, Gregory Liasco.

He is accused of breaking into the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals last October and hiding nearby.

When he was found by a police dog he was wearing a camouflage suit that made him look like a mound of moss.
