Police Search For Suspects After A Home Is Broken Into In Kennewick Monday NightPosted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police are looking for a suspect after homes were burglarized near North Nevada Street.
Some neighbors are concerned.
Tuesday night Kennewick Police said the suspect was still on the loose.
Police were called to the 1500 block of North Nevada Street on Monday night at around 10 o'clock.
According to police the suspect stole a computer, DVD player, stereo and other items.
After talking with neighbors authorities think the suspect was knocking on doors, trying to determine if the homeowners were there.
Police said if the homeowner answered, the suspect would say he was looking for someone and asked if the person lived there.
Two homes were broken into near North Nevada, but a number of neighbors have told police a Hispanic man had knocked on their door late at night.
John Benson said, "I hope they have the opportunity to catch them and prosecute them. Breaking into someone home is really serious."
Sergeant Brian Swartswalter said, "If something seems out of the ordinary, we'd like to get a call right away cause we'd like to identify this person and find out who they are."
Benton County Deputies saw a similar situation in Prosser a month ago but over there if the homeowner answered the door the suspect asked the homeowner if they had any gas.
Police do not if this is the same suspect. They also think there could be multiple people involved.
Police recommend that you be aware of any suspicious vehicles and situations. They suggest writing down the license of any strange cars parked in their neighborhood.
