KPD searching for man suspected of stealing stereo equipment from Walmart

Kennewick police are searching for a man suspected of stealing stereo equipment from the Kennewick Walmart.


Police say on Saturday around 7:20 PM, a man stole the equipment from the store on South Quillan Street and drove away in a pick-up truck.


Officers arrived as the suspect was driving away, and they say the suspect almost hit a Kennewick Police patrol vehicle and jumped over a curb while getting away.

They say the suspect drove toward the Canyon Lakes Golf Course, where he ran away, leaving his truck behind.


Officers say they could not identify the owner of the truck, as they found stolen vehicle plates from Washington and out of state.


The suspect is described as a white male possibly in his forties with light or blonde colored hair.


The suspect truck is being impounded by police pending further investigation.


Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is encouraged to call the Kennewick Police Department at (509) 628-0333.
