Kennewick police have arrested three teens in connection with two burglaries and a stolen car reported in late March.
One teen was initially identified after allegedly being seen in video footage during the burglary of the Knob Hill Store at 424 S. Gum St. on March 27, said police.
The boy, whose name was not released, was arrested at home and some stolen items were recovered. That teen’s parents gave information that identified a second suspect and he was arrested at a home at 820 S. Alder St.
After more investigation, the officers found that the teens allegedly were driving a 2002 Pontiac Sunbird, reported stolen from 639 S. Everett St. on March 22, that was recovered in Monopoly Park in east Kennewick four days later.

The teens had tried to sell the car and loaned it to another teen who used it to burglarize a home in the 3000 block of Dayton Street on March 25, said police.
Officers ended up getting a search warrant for the home on Alder Street where a second suspect was arrested.
They recovered the title and report of sale for the Pontiac, as well as property associated with the Knob Hill Store and Dayton Street burglaries. A 15-year-old boy living at the home also was arrested for possession of stolen property.
The teens names were not released. Two of them remain in custody at the juvenile center and more arrests are pending based on statements from witnesses and fingerprint evidence.
