Man pleads not guilty to car theft

BELLEVUE — Martin John Healy, a 34-year-old Eastside man, pleaded not guilty yesterday to a first-degree theft charge in King County Superior Court.

A witness told police last month he saw Healy use a screwdriver to start a Jeep Cherokee in the parking lot of a Bellevue auto-repair business on Northeast 14th Place. Healy was later arrested and booked into the King County Jail. He posted a $25,000 bond and was released Saturday, said King County prosecutors' spokesman Dan Donohoe.

At the time police say Healy stole the Jeep, he was awaiting sentencing on other charges.
