Two motorcycle thieves nailed after Benton County traffic stop

Thursday afternoon, the Benton County Sheriff's office reported a pair of suspects in a motorcycle theft were arrested.

The location was not given, but the BCSO said the Deputy pulled the pair over because they were riding without helmets.

A check on the registration and other information revealed the bike had been stolen nearly a month ago out of Kennewick. The two suspects were taken to the Benton County Jail due to possession of the stolen vehicle. No word yet if any other charges pending.
