Moses Lake Police need help identifying suspects who vandalized property

MOSES LAKE, Wash. — Law enforcement has observed a steady uptick in illegal vandalism in the form of tagging, but thanks to some surveillance footage captured by a neighboring business and community input, authorities might be able to bring a pair of suspects to justice.

The Moses Lake Police Department took to social media on Wednesday morning with surveillance footage that was submitted from someone’s Ring video system.

This 31-second clip shared on social media shows a silver passenger vehicle pull into a parking lot. Two people emerge from the back of the vehicle, grab items from inside the car, look around and quickly tag the side of a building.

First was a suspect wearing a dark blue hoodie, black pants, and black shoes. The second suspect wore a white t-shirt, black cap, Nike athletic shorts, tall white socks, and white Nike shoes with a black check. The driver did not exit the vehicle in the footage captured and published online.

Now, Moses Lake police officials are asking the community to help identify the suspects and/or the vehicle. Their social media post read as follows:

“There has been an increase in vandalism throughout the city, primarily in the form of tagging. Many people have video systems on their homes and businesses, and this video is a great example of the help that the community can give to the MLPD.

“If we can identify the suspects and/or vehicle, it gives us a chance to make an arrest and get some resolution to the victim.”

Anyone with information to contribute can contact the Moses Lake Police Department by calling (509) 764-3887.

This is a developing news story. An update and/or follow-up may be issued once further details are publically revealed.
