Kennewick Store Owner Offers $1,000 Reward for Information Leading to Arrest of Thief [VIDEO]
A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the man who injured a hobby store employee Tuesday evening around 5 pm. The man left Kennewick's HobbyTown USA without paying for merchandise. The owner of HobbyTown USA is offering the reward.
The man in the video and above photos walked out of HobbyTown with a remote control car. The man is in his late teens or early 20's with blonde or light brown hair. He was wearing a gray jacket, dark-colored jeans, and white tennis shoes.
The suspect left the store with an Axial remote control car valued at $540. HobbyTown's owner, Jeremy Mansius said the employee, Tycho, broke out the driver's window and was knocked unconscious after he was dragged for 100 feet or more. Kennewick Police arrived at the scene shortly after. Medics arrived and Tycho was transported to Trios Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
The vehicle is described as a dark-colored (maybe maroon or black) late '80s or early '90s possible Ford Explorer. The driver's side window is busted out.
Mansius is hoping that anyone who recognizes the man will call Kennewick Police at 509-628-0333 with information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
Tycho is recuperating from the injuries sustained in the Tuesday evening assault. Hobbytown USA is located at 1360 North Louisiana Street, Suite G, in Kennewick.
