Just A Minit Store Robber Also Busted for Pasco Heist
Pasco Police now say two burglaries have been likely solved with one arrest.
Kennewick Police Wednesday morning arrested 30-year-old Zachary A. Weisbeck of Finley on charges he held up the Just A Mini Mart in Benton City Tuesday afternoon around 4:20PM.
Evidence seized, including the recovery of the black Nissan Maxima pictured in our story, linked the suspect to Monday afternoon's robbery of Kim's Market. Around 12:19PM that day, the suspect, presumably Weisbeck, entered the store, displayed a weapon and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
He is now in the Benton County Jail facing multiple charges. Authorities say clothing and the weapon were recovered, matching both robberies as well as other 'undisclosed' evidence.
Pasco Police say they're still working to determine if Weisbeck was the suspect in the Saturday night armed robbery at the same Kim's Market. That suspect used a silver weapon. The store was robbed twice in the span of 3 days. The investigation continues.
