Police Fear Car Theft Suspect has Honda Master Key
KENNEWICK, Wash.- If you own a certain kind of car, you may not for long.
Kennewick Police say someone may have a master key for some Honda Accords.
Police say three Accords went missing within hours of each other Wednesday, but two were just recovered near where they were taken from, and the suspects may have a master key they're using to easily get into the cars.
Police say the cars disappeared between 1:30 and 4:45 Wednesday afternoon from parking lots at the Kennewick REI, Wal-Mart and Marineland Village near Clearwater and Edison.
The cars from REI and Wal-Mart were just recovered.
Police are looking for a suspect car from surveillance footage taken yesterday at Wal-Mart.
"Hondas, Accords are one of the most popular vehicles that are being stolen and in the past we've experienced that they get stripped out and dumped at different locations," said Mike Blatman with Kennewick Police.
In this case it looks like that won't happen.
The suspect car looks like a gold or tan two door Honda or Acura with custom lights and black rims.
Police are still looking for one stolen 1991 Accord.
They're afraid if someone does have a Honda master key, they may just be testing it to see which cars it works in.
