Kennewick burglar checks MySpace, gives police a break

KENNEWICK — A burglar who spent about five hours on a store’s computer after breaking into the business gave police all the clues they needed to track him down.

Investigators say the 17-year-old logged into his MySpace account while at Bella Office Furniture and that made it easy for them to find him. He also spent time looking at pornography and trying to sell stolen items, all while using the business’ computer.

He was arrested Tuesday and charged with first degree burglary. Kennewick Police say he helped officers recover a cell phone stolen in the break-in.
