West Richland battles car prowls

WEST RICHLAND - It's a small town hit by another outbreak of crime. West Richland continues to deal with car prowls.

Eleven prowls were reported in just the past three days. And as you can on this map, two major clusters were hit. The police tell us all of the vehicles were unlocked.

And residents tell us they're surprised by the recent hits.

"I think West Richland is pretty safe compared to the other towns around. / It's a sign of the times, really. People would rather work at night than during the day," said West Richland resident Jay Bold.

Police are still working to get leads.
