15-year-old arrested for gang graffiti in Kennewick

City of Yakima

KENNEWICK, Wash. — Kennewick police arrested a 15-year-old on Feb. 18 for a gang graffiti spree that spanned for two months.

Between November 2019 to January 2020, a considerable amount of gang graffiti had been found mostly in the east end of Kennewick. This gave probable cause for the search warrant of a Pasco home, where police tracked down the suspect — a teenager.

Police say the juvenile was booked on several counts of malicious mischief.

According to police, this incident is part of an ongoing effort in order to identify those responsible and hold accountable individuals for defacing private and public property throughout the City of Kennewick.
