A Richland man was arrested Monday for allegedly robbing a Kennewick woman in March and using her debit card at several stores.
Sarah M. Verduzco was allegedly assaulted while giving a ride on March 17 to two acquaintances, Tyler Wayne Thomas and another person, a release said.
Thomas and the other unnamed suspect ran off with Verduzco’s purse and later that day made purchases at Walgreens, Lowe’s, Target and Office Max. Video footage confirmed it was Thomas and the other suspect who used the card, said police.
Thomas was booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of first-degree robbery and second-degree identity theft.
