KENNEWICK, Wash., -- A man accused of stealing more than $ 5,000 from 509 Fitness gym members last year appeared in Benton County court today.

Jason Sleater is charged with first degree theft.

He waived his right to a speedy arraignment and postponed his hearing until next week.

Sleater allegedly charged over 350 gym members a 'gym enhancement fee' of $19.60 for a 2 month period, then closed the business without offering refunds.
