The Kennewick Police again remind citizens to be on the lookout for suspicious persons in their neighborhood. The majority of these thefts were targeted towards Honda's with the exception of the $70,000 work truck. Additionally, license plates were stolen. This is a common method for car thieves to steal license plates to then place on stolen cars to make it more difficult to detect a stolen car. We encourage everyone today to check their vehicles and make sure that their license plates on both the front and rear are still intact.


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
