Kennewick Thieves Steal Huge Potato Scale – The Question Is, WHY?
Because of the struggling economy, we heard about copper thefts, especially from construction sites, and irrigation setups. But a potato scale?
Kennewick police and Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers are search for a thief, or more likely, thieves, who stole a large potato scale from Baker Produce at 212 Railroad Ave. last Sunday, between 5-6 pm.
The large 4-foot-by-4-foot scale is usually only moveable by forklift, or multiple (very strong!) people. Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers is asking anyone who might have information to provide an anonymous tip at 509-586-TIPS (8477). Information leading to the arrest or apprehension of a suspect can result in a cash reward.
