Kennewick Drug Bust

Police busted two people in Kennewick for drugs on Thursday night. Kennewick Police's Criminal Apprehension Team executed a search warrant and came away with two arrests. They started the investigation a month ago.

Police went to the house earlier this evening. They knocked but no one answered. They opened the door only to find almost 19 grams of marijuana.

Kevin Jennings and Maureen Kirima were arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Jennings might also be charged with delivery of a controlled substance.

Police hope that arresting the street dealers prevents bigger problems in the future. They hope they don't have to continue arresting the same people.
