Kennewick Police and other law enforcement officers think this suspect may have fled to Leavenworth, but they're still keeping an eye out for him here. Benton County Sheriff's Deputies also searching for him as well.

Richard Edward Thomas is accused of a recent theft of at least $12K worth of tools from a local business, apparently enough evidence to file charges for his arrest.

Authorities are keeping an eye out for him and are asking the public to do so as well. Although some leads indicate he may have headed to the Wenatchee area, he could still be here. Anyone who sees him is asked to call (509)-628-0333.
