Kennewick Police Say Gang Member Arrested for Hit and Run

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police say a gang member is now in jail after officers saw him leave from a hit and run crash. 

A Benton County Judge has set bail for 23-year-old Stephen E. Morfin on a nearly $74,000 bond. Officers say Morfin is a convicted felon and a gang member, who had a DOC warrant out for his arrest.

Police say a detective saw Morfin leave the scene of a hit and run accident on Saturday. Officers say on Tuesday, they found his car parked at 4th Avenue and Olympia Street, so they set up surveillance and arrested him when he came out of an apartment.

The picture you see here is of Morfin on trial last year, when a Franklin County jury acquitted him of assaulting a woman and her teenage daughter.
