Richland Police say suspect tied to a String of crimes

A suspect apprehended by Richland Police a few days ago is now tied to a long string of retail alcohol thefts.

RPD says the suspect, whose name was not given, was long suspected of stealing a lot of alcohol from Tri-City and Richland area retailers.

Police had a good idea who he was, having been captured on surveillance cameras. An officer located him in the Vintner Square shopping area on Duportail on May 25th, and he was apprehended without incident.

Inside his vehicle, police found substantial amounts of stolen merchandise as well as a firearm. Because the man is a convicted felon, additional charges will be added to his list.

His vehicle has also been impounded pending further investigation. Police called the arrest a "substantial" breakthrough.
