Police seek 3 men who burglarized Kennewick bagel store early Monday
Kennewick police are looking for three men who burglarized Some Bagels in Kennewick early Monday.
The men ransacked the business at 810 S. Washington St. and stole an undisclosed amount of cash about 2:30 a.m. The break-in was caught on the business' surveillance video.
The crime was discovered about 7 a.m. Monday when a Red Apple Market employee saw that the door of Some Bagels was kicked open, said Mike Blatman, the law enforcement coordinator for Crime Stoppers.
The video shows a shirtless man wearing plaid shorts kicked the door down. He and two other men ransacked the kitchen, Blatman said.
The video shows the men pouring cash from cash drawers into a black bag. One was dressed in a puffy blue jacket with a red cap.
Once they realized there were security cameras, Blatman said, they took a broomstick and started trying to hit the cameras, causing debris to fall from the ceiling.
Damage to the door is estimated at $800 to $900, he said.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Tri-City Crime Stoppers at 586-8477 or 800-222-8477.
