Local police departments have recovered stolen items from recent burglaries of houses under construction and model homes. The release below was issued by the Kennewick police department.
On Monday January 20th, the Richland Police recovered stolen property that was linked to a burglary in Kennewick. Richland Detectives along with Kennewick Detectives then contacted a residence in Kennewick (11 E 13th) and with consent to search from the resident, found stolen property outside the home that could be linked to more recent burglaries.
Information from that search led investigators to a residence in Pasco (1419 N 15th). With a search warrant, investigators recovered more stolen property on January 21st. That then led to an additional search warrant back at 11 E 13th in Kennewick where investigators found more stolen property inside the home.
The majority of the stolen property recovered was taken in burglaries of houses that are under construction or model homes. 1 of the locations was in Pasco, 1 in Richland and 3 in Kennewick. The majority of the property has been returned to the owners. In all, about 4 truckloads of property valued at approximately $10,000 to $15,000 was recovered.
We do still have some unclaimed property in the Kennewick Police evidence garage today if members of the media would like to view.
