Another burglary in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  For the second time in as many days, a burglary in Kennewick ends with no arrests and thankfully little to nothing stolen. 

The latest happened Wednesday night just after 7 p.m. at the Hawaiian Village apartments.  Kennewick police say the man living at the complex came home to find his dog had been stabbed, and the window screen cut open. 

Police aren't sure who's behind this, but they say the two don't appear to be linked.  Police also say the apartment complex is safe, but it's an important message for all apartment owners.

"That's an area where we have a lot of apartment complexes and it has a lot of condensed living.  And when you have conditions of condensed living, you will have more crime in that area, just because so many people are living within such a small radius," says Officer Tony Valdez with KPD.

As for the dog, we are told he was stitched up and doing okay.  It is important to note this burglary comes as police continue their 'Operation Clean Sweep.'  Police are cracking down on any suspicious activity.  In the last week alone, three arrests were made stemming from recent burglaries and car prowling.  Of course, officers are asking for your help in their efforts to curb the crime.
