KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - Two people have been arrested and accused of renting Kennewick vacant homes in foreclosure to others under false pretenses.

KEPR-TV reports (https://goo.gl/rntXtE ) that a 32-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man were arrested Tuesday on investigation of burglary. They were charged with three counts and additional charges are pending.

Kennewick police say the pair forced their way into vacated homes, changed the locks and rented the residences to other people. The suspects made rental agreements, or rent-to-own agreements and made prospective renters believe the rentals were legitimate.
