Home invasion in Kennewick; marijuana grow discovered
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Kennewick police are looking for suspects of an armed robbery, and are also investigating a marijuana grow discovered in light of that same home invasion.
Kennewick police say it happened Tuesday morning just after 7am at a home on West Entiat Street. They say the victim, 32-year-old Jeff Glines and his girlfriend, 27-year-old Tina Archey were at home with Gline's two children when two men armed with a shot gun broke in. The suspects detained the victims, took a rifle from the home, an undisclosed amount of cash, Gline's truck and fled.
Neighbors say after the robbers left, Glines ran to a house across the street to call 911. His hands were duct taped.
The pickup was found two blocks away, abandoned in a church parking log.
The suspects are described as men in their mid-20's. They were wearing ski masks.
During an investigation, officers found a large marijuana grow operation inside the home. Glines was booked into the Benton County Jail for Manufacturing a Controlled Substance
Sergeant Ken Lattin with the Kennewick Police Department says at this point, the victims say they don't know the attackers. Police are still searching for robbery suspects.
