Pair of Moses Lake men arrested for back-to-back robberies in broad daylight
MOSES LAKE, Wash. — Two suspects were brought into custody by Grant County Sheriff’s deputies after back-to-back robberies across a rural neighborhood.
According to a social media post from the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to the 2300-block of Valley Road around 11:30 a.m. on June 23, 2022. Initial 9-1-1 callers say they saw two suspicious men prowling in their neighborhood, running back and forth to their car with a variety of items in their hands.
With the suspects’ descriptions and vehicle information shared, deputies surveyed the area in search of the suspects. Meanwhile, another victim contacted 9-1-1 to report that two men threatened to kill him in his own driveway. The two men are accused of stealing the victim’s cell phone and driving off in the same vehicle.
A short while later, Grant County deputies located the vehicle at a gas station in Cascade Valley. Despite being on foot, the two suspects were quickly tracked down and contacted by law enforcement agents. After detaining them, GCSO deputies developed probable cause to arrest them for both incidents.
These men were identified as 40-year-old Kasey Hardy and 33-year-old Michael Padgett Jr.—both residents of Moses Lake. They were booked into the Grant County Jail for second-degree robbery with further charges pending.
