Richland PD is warning citizens about a rise in a crime they can be easily be a victim of. In the past 30 days they've seen a rise in prowlers breaking in to cars in North Richland. In a Facebook post Richland PD said that the number of cars being broken in to has risen, and in most cases the cars were UNLOCKED! Unlocked garages were also broken in to as well.

They are urging people to lock their vehicles and garages to discourage the prowlers and keep safe. If you saw something or can possibly help contact RPD at (509) 942-7340. Be careful out there!
