Man Hides in Ice Chest After Attempted Burglary

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  A home invasion burglary in Kennewick ends with one man behind bars, and you'll never guess where police found him. 

19-year-old Jesus Cisneros  now faces residential burglary charges after police say he broke into a woman's home late Tuesday night.  He was found just a few yards from the 2000-block of West Fourth Avenue.  Police say Cisneros and another male broke into a nearby home hoping to steal whatever he could get his hands on. 

The woman inside the home woke to find the two inside.  That's when they took off running.  Cisneros didn't get far; he was found on Third Avenue.

But where was he trying to hide?  Inside in ice chest freezer.  The owner of that freezer says the whole scene was scary.

"I don't know exactly what happened," says Roberta, who didn't want to give a last name.  "There were a bunch of cops around.   It's kind of scary really."

Roberta says she uses the ice chest almost daily, mostly keeps meat inside.

We stopped by the home that was hit several times, but nobody came to the door.

As for the second alleged burglar, police haven't made any arrests, and won't comment on any possible leads.  If you have any information, call Kennewick police.
