Summary of Incident:Kennewick, Wa. On Monday of this week we reported about a large number of burglaries over last weekend.
Through investigation and crime analysis, we believe that we have had 14 residential burglaries dating back to mid October that are related. Most of these burglaries have taken place east of SR 395 and have occurred late afternoon and early evening. Although overall our reported burglaries are down by 12% year to date compared to the same time period in 2012, we are very concerned about this recent series.
We are asking residents to call police every time they see a person(s) or vehicle that is out of place in their neighborhood. In addition, in some of these cases, we suspect that the burglar knocked on the door and when the resident answered, the suspect asked for a person who doesn't live there. That should be a red flag to call police.
If someone has information that they would like to provide while remaining confidential, they may call the Crime Stoppers line at 586-TIPS (8477), 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit www.tricitiescimestoppers.org Prepared by: Lattin Date / Time: 112213 at 0900
