KENNEWICK, Wash. — Just hours after the Kennewick Police Department (KPD) announced an arrest related to a stolen vehicle, the Pasco Police Department (PPD) asked the community to keep an eye out on a different stolen car.

According to a post by the Kennewick Police Department’s Facebook page, a 32-year-old man identified as Cameron Schuoler was arrested yesterday for possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of stolen property and methamphetamine possession.

Officials say that a man recently went through great lengths to break into a local tow yard. While inside, the suspect allegedly prowled the lot for his vehicle of choice and stole one of the vehicles.

Yesterday morning, KPD Officer McGee worked with other officers in the “A Shift” and found the vehicle in the parking lot of a local motel. However, the licence plate on the vehicle was not the same as the original license plate, leading authorities to believe that the license plate was stolen as well.

Authorities allegedly conducted surveillance to gather intel, leading officers to notice two individuals getting into the vehicle, which prompted a high-risk stop. The occupants of the vehicle were detained safely and without commotion.

That vehicle was impounded as authorities await clearance for further investigation via a search warrant.
