Wanted Felon Busted After Seen Wandering in Busy Road
One guy spent the afternoon and night of his July 4th in the Benton County jail after police found him wandering in a busy road.
Officers responded to a call from a concerned driver about a man wandering in and out of the street nera 10th and Ely -- not exactly a quiet neighborhood in Kennewick. The man was moving far enough out in lanes of travel he was almost hit.
Police arrived for a welfare check and found 32-year-old Evan Kirkelie was not only wanted for an outstanding Department of Corrections warrant, but evidence found on his person led to an investigation for alleged mail theft. He's now in the Benton County jail.
