Police say man may be responsible for dozens of burglaries
KENNEWICK, Wash. - Police say you can earn some extra cash this holiday season or spend some time in jail after they find evidence from several burglaries in the home of a wanted man's friend.
On Monday, officers found big screen TV's, tire rims, car stereos and even goods stolen from a church at an apartment on 601 South Kent in Kennewick. A stolen engine found in a car at that apartment links two men to the recent rash of Honda and Acuras stolen.
Matthew Lohstreter was staying with Ricardo Loredo, Jr. in the apartment. That's were detectives found goods from dozens of local businesses and a church. They've tied Lohstreter to at least ten other burglaries.
Police think Lohstreter is jumping from home to home staying with several different friends. That's where Kennewick Police's warning comes in. They said they're willing to arrest anyone who is caught with the stolen goods in their home. But anyone knows where Lohstreter is and turns him into police could earn up to $1,000 from Crime Stoppers.
