Kennewick police have a message for owners of Hondas and Acuras: Keep a close eye on your car.

In the past two weeks, five people have reported their Honda or Integras stolen, and four of the cars were found a short time later stripped by thieves, said Kennewick police Sgt. Ken Lattin.

Cars targeted so far have been a Honda Accord swiped on Jan. 7 in front of a restaurant at the Columbia Center mall and a Honda Civic stolen Jan 11 from a driveway.

Both cars were recovered the same day they were stolen, with the Civic found on blocks and all four tires gone, Lattin said.

A 1989 Acura Integra was taken from in front of a home and a 1996 Civic was taken from a driveway.

Both were found stripped later that day in Benton County.

The fifth car was reported stolen this week from in front of a home.

The black 1997 Acura with black wheels and a spoiler has not yet been found. Its license plate number is 486 WKP.

Lattin said anyone who owns a 1990s model Honda or Acura should keep their cars locked up in a garage if available and be on the lookout for people who may be showing extra interest in their vehicle.

If something looks suspicious, officials say please call the police.
