KENNEWICK, Wash. - A Kennewick man was taken Benton County jail Tuesday afternoon after police said he stole from his wife's former place of employment.
Kennewick Police said she was recently let go from the Halloween Store at the Columbia Center Mall.
Kennewick Detective Mike Hamilton said they found the stolen money at the couple's house located on the 48 hundred block of West Canal Drive.
Monday morning authorities were notified when an undisclosed amount of money was missing from the safe at the Halloween Store in the mall.
Police said after a number of interviews and investigation they tracked down Carry Fisher, the husband of a former employee and arrested him for second-degree burglary.
Hamilton said, "We served a search warrant to pick up the money that was stolen from the burglary and we found that and have it in evidence."
Tri-Cities Animal control was also called to the scene because the family's pit bull apparently bit the wife in the face.
Detectives said she has not been arrested and is cooperating with authorities.
Fisher is in Benton County Jail on a 72-hour hold.
