A Kennewick police officer was patrolling in the right place at the right time to catch a shoplifter.
An employee of Radio Shack left the store behind a man suspected of shoplifting two drones worth $200 on North Ely Street at 6:10 p.m. on Thursday. He signaled for a police officer passing through the parking lot.
The officer saw the suspect and ran after him, catching him four blocks later, according to Kennewick police.
Kyle Van Halteren, 27, of Kennewick, was arrested on suspicion of fourth-degree theft and resisting arrest by running away.
