Suspect Steals Woman’s Property AND Dog, He’s In Custody
A Kennewick man is in custody Monday after a weekend break-in and theft that resulted in him stealing a woman's dog.
36-year-old Kyle Maplethorpe is accused of forcibly breaking into the woman's residence near West Kennewick Ave. and North Waverly Place Friday night.
He allegedly stole personal items, including furniture and her Lab-mix dog. He did considerable damage to the door during the break-in. The investigation continued, and Sunday officers received a tip and credible information Maplethorpe was at a location in the 7800 block of Quinault Ave.
He was taken into custody on at least Residential Burglary charges. The property and importantly, the dog, were returned to the woman.
The investigation continues.
