West Richland Cops Bust 12-Year-Old Joyriders!
West Richland police got a jolt when an officer pulled over a vehicle that had just driven into Flat Top Park, because it was 2am Tuesday morning. The policeman just wanted to find out who they were and why they were there.
But what Officer Long found was surprising. Inside the car were two 12-year-old boys, who had taken one of their grandmother's car without permission and they were joyriding.
According to a witness, these might have been a car reportedly seen doing 'donuts' in a nearby parking lot. The two were reprimanded to the care of their parents, the car returned, and the case was referred to the Benton County Prosecuting Attorney.
