Meth suspect armed with brass knuckles arrested in Richland

A Pasco man is arrested Friday night for allegedly going door to door in Richland asking for fuel and directions to the nearest gas station.

When officers made contact with 27-year-old Juan Vela, Vela told them that he was armed with two sets of brass knuckles.

Vela refused to tell officers why he had armed himself with brass knuckles.

A check also revealed Vela had two warrants for his arrest and was in possession of meth when taken into custody.
