A sharp-eyed Kennewick woman and her son helped police nab a car prowler Sunday night.
The 68-year-old woman was at home on the 3200 block of West 46th Avenue when she noticed the tail lights of her son’s truck about 11 p.m., said Kennewick Officer Roman Trujillo.
She thought it was strange, considering her son was asleep. Trujillo said that’s when she noticed the cab light also turn on.
She woke her son, who grabbed a handgun.
Never miss a local story.
The 38-year-old man went outside to find Michael Magula, 23, of Kennewick, pawing through the cab of his truck.
Police arrived soon afterward.
Officers found things Magula took from the truck. They also reported finding loot from other prowls inside Magula’s backpack.
Magula had a stun gun holstered on his belt, police said. There also was a knife nearby on the ground.
And police said he was carrying some pills that were a controlled substance.
Magula was booked into the Benton County jail on investigation of possession of a controlled substance and car prowling.
