Deputies arrest Kennewick man who allegedly stole $1,400 in gas

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Benton County deputies have caught a man who allegedly used stolen gas cards to buy $1,400 of fuel.

Blaine R. White, 28, of Kennewick was arrested Saturday on two counts of second-degree theft. He’s being held at the Benton County Jail.

Last week, deputies said he used the stolen gas cards at Pacific Pride in Kennewick and other places in Pasco and Lewiston, Idaho from mid-May to early June. 

Sgt. Justin Gerry said investigators received an anonymous tip identifying White as the suspect after posting a photo of him and his truck on the sheriff’s office Facebook page

Deputies learned White's location and obtained a search warrant for his white Ford F-150 pickup.

He allegedly tried to change the appearance of the pickup by spray-painting the bed of the truck and making a stripe on the vehicle.

White was booked into jail on an investigative hold. The prosecutor’s office has 72 hours to charge him with a crime.
