However, he did cause significant damage to the door. West Richland Police released this statement about the suspect's vehicle:

"Our city compound has numerous cameras, which should come as a surprise to no one. The burglar did an adequate job of hiding their face but could not have picked a vehicle that was any less stealthy. When I say there aren’t many mid 90’s, black Jeep Cherokees with a gold stripe, no front license plate, lifted with no running boards, a rooftop luggage rack holding a spare tire and a flag whip attached to the back bumper….. I mean there’s literally only one."
