OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington state’s insurance commissioner says a Connecticut man accused in a golf-related scam and charged with three felony counts has been extradited to Washington state.

Kevin Kolenda was booked into King County jail on Friday after being extradited from Norwalk, Connecticut. He is being held on $200,000 bail while he awaits a hearing.

Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler says his office’s detectives, working with Norwalk police, arrested Kevin Kolenda in April in that city.

The King County prosecutor has charged him with attempted first-degree theft and two counts of selling insurance without a license through his golf tournament marketing website, hole-in-won.com

The man earlier pleaded guilty in Washington to three felony charges for selling insurance without a license and theft, stemming from his failure to pay hole-in-one awards ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.
