Social Media Helps Cops Catch Kennewick Robbery Suspects
Kennewick police have found and arrested two suspects in a robbery with the help of an unlikely ally...social media. The two men arrested are actually boys, one 19 and one 17 and still in high school. The 19 year old, Brandon Giovanni Medina, and the un-named 17 year old both turned them selves in after finding their names and pictures as suspects on Facebook according to a police press release.
The robbery happened on May 26 at the Super Mini Mart on the 2400 block of West Kennewick Ave. Allegedly the boys broke a big window in front, enter multiple times and steal cigarettes and beer each time they went back. There pictures were posted from the security cameras and that is what led them to turn themselves in.
