Sunnyside Gang Unit busts theft ring

Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE, Wash.-- It's been a busy month for the Sunnyside Police Department's Gang Unit.

Since October 6th, they've arrested 18 people tied to three different burglary and theft rings in Benton and Yakima Counties.

Wednesday, officers served another search warrant at a home in Sunnyside and collected more stolen property, everything from guns, to car stereos. 

"Following leads, not letting anything go, you know? If they get just a little information they dig on it, and dig on it. They're going right after it and doing a great job," said Sgt. Joey Glossen with the Sunnyside Police Dept.

Police say they typically see a spike in burglaries this time of year, so people should always remember to keep their homes and cars locked up.
