Secret Witness is offering a reward in the amount of $500.00 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect wanted in connection with the hit and run of a 14-year-old male victim on Village Parkway and Alder Way Incline Village, NV.
Deputies responded to the scene located above around 9:45 p.m. on July 2, 2021. They found the boy in a ditch with good Samaritans and North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District medical personnel rendering aid. The juvenile sustained significant injuries to his leg. He was transported by medical personnel to a hospital in Reno. Witness indicated the suspect driver of a red, 1995 Jeep Wrangler was traveling north on Village Parkway and turned westbound onto Alder Way, striking the boy while he was riding a bicycle. The driver of the Jeep got out, said something to the juvenile, then drove off. Deputies located a Jeep nearby fitting that description with evidence of a recent incident. A warrant was granted for that vehicle’s seizure. Detectives do have a person of interest in this case.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the suspect. Anyone having information relating to this crime, the suspect vehicle, or the suspect should contact the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office at 775-328-3320, or remain anonymous and call or text your tip to Secret Witness at 775-322-4900 or go on-line to secretwitness.com.
