A concerned citizen calls authorities
The call came in from a customer at Lowe's who noticed the woman appearing to be "passed out" (as opposed to snoozing) in the car.
Kennewick Fire units responded the 29-year-old woman was apparently awakened. But when Kennewick Police ran the plates and VIN, the car came back stolen out of Pasco last week. The car was a 1990's Honda Accord. Her name was not released.
The woman is now in the Benton County jail facing auto theft and other multiple warrants, according to KPD
Honda Accords are among the most stolen vehicles every year.
According to various insurance and automotive websites and data, Honda Accords' are the 4th most stolen car model in America, year after year. The ones most taken at 1997 models, although many other years are included on the list.
Often, they're resold on the black market, or commonly stripped for parts for other Hondas.
