Trial set for woman accused of selling stolen copper

The Tri-City HeraldJuly 3, 2014 

A Kennewick woman faces a Sept. 8 trial for allegedly selling copper that was stolen from a Richland construction site.

Kathy Faye Knowles, 63, pleaded innocent to second-degree trafficking in stolen property.

Prosecutors alleged that Knowles went to a Kennewick recycling business in late November to sell the stolen copper. Knowles is seen on security video presenting her identification and receiving money for the copper, court documents said.

The copper and several tools were taken from a Henderson Loop property.

Police found the stolen tools during a search of Knowles' parents' house, documents said.

The suspect is not Kathy Ann Knowles, a Richland real estate agent.
