A Kennewick man is in jail after police say he robbed two convenience stores at gunpoint Monday.
Kevin Krupkat Jr., 21, of Kennewick, allegedly walked into the 7-Eleven at 3606 W. Clearwater Ave. at 1:31 a.m. and aimed a pistol at the clerk and demanded cash, said Kennewick police.
Then at 4 a.m. he allegedly pointed a pistol at a clerk at the Circle K store at 6006 W. Clearwater Ave.
But the second time, a police officer saw him running from the store and caught and arrested him.
