Police in search of suspects in Kennewick home invasion

Oregon police have arrested a suspect in a Kennewick burglary where rifles and more than $20,000 in cash were stolen.

However, two other suspects in the heist remain at large and are believed to be armed and dangerous.

A total of 22 guns, including seven large-caliber rifles, the cash, loads of ammunition, silver coins and documents were taken during the Aug. 25 break-in.

Police found seven of the stolen guns and some ammunition during searches last week in Kennewick and Pasco.

Louis Haberling was arrested Tuesday at a motel in Eugene along with his girlfriend and the girlfriend of another suspect in the robbery, police announced Wednesday.

Suspects Cooper Homme and Antonio Deleon are wanted by Kennewick police.

Homme and his girlfriend, Brianna Smith, led Eugene police on a short pursuit Monday, authorities said. Police found their abandon vehicle, which had a stolen AR-15 rifle and several rounds of ammunition inside.

Police believe Homme is hiding out in the Eugene area, and Deleon may still be in the Tri-Cities. Felony warrants have been issued for their arrest.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Homme and Deleon are asked to call 911. Police urge people not to contact the men.
