Police Arrest Two for Trying to Sell Stolen DVDs

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - Two people from Kennewick are facing charges for trafficking stolen property after police say they tried to sell stolen goods.

Richland Police started investigating reports of stolen property being sold back to Hastings in early May. Officers say people had been coming into the store on George Washington Way to sell DVDs and Blu-Ray discs, some still sealed in plastic.

Police say they went to the store on Friday, after reports that 31-year-old Jaime Manis of Kennewick and 28-year-old Richard Crouchet of Kennewick were there with additional movies to sell.

Officers say Manis had a warrant for her arrest, and has sold more than 130 Blu-Ray and DVD movies to Hastings since January.

Police arrested Manis and Crouchet under suspicion of trafficking stolen property. Officers also seized their car, where they say they found several plastic wrappers from DVDs and Blu-Ray discs from Wal-Mart.

Police say when they contacted Wal-Mart, security video confirmed Manis and Crouchet had been in the store, and shoplifted discs from an end cap display.

The two are currently in the Benton County Jail.
