Shoplifter Assaults Worker, Then Returns to SAME Store Later
Some say criminals are actually smart, because it takes a lot of work to scheme up some of their activities. But this is an example of how crime makes you stupid.
Either that, or this guy REALLY likes shopping (shoplifting) at Winco Foods on Clearwater in Kennewick. On January 16, 18-year-old Jose Monzon allegedly shoplifted, and when confronted by an employee (likely a Loss Prevention worker) fled the store but not before they fought briefly.
Despite the assault he returned to the store on Tuesday and allegedly repeated the theft. He was later located by Kennewick police with a juvenile female who was also arrested. Why she was taken into custody was not revealed by police.
Monzon is now facing robbery charges.
