Some say the clothes make the man.
In this case, the clothes “made” the armed robber.
In September, Hunter D. Shauers, 21, of Kennewick, was caught on camera wearing some recognizable clothing when he cashed a stolen check, said Kennewick police.
The detective working the identity theft case received a tip on Saturday that Shauers was at West Coast Auto Dealers. They came by and arrested him.
Never miss a local story.
Sometime during the investigation, an officer noticed Shauers had worn the same clothes worn by a man who pulled a gun on a clerk at the Pik-A-Pop gas station on Columbia Drive early Thursday, said Kennewick police Sgt. Ryan Kelly.
The armed robber was wearing a distinctive black Under Armour hoodie jacket pulled up over his head and a mask to conceal his face.
After talking with Shauers, he was arrested for the robbery, as well.
Authorities are also investigating Shauers for two other property crimes in October.
