Less than an hour after a city-wide press release, Missoula Police have been able to track down the suspect of a New Years Day hit and run incident that damaged city property.

According to Sergent Greg Amundsen of the Missoula Police Department the suspect’s car was found at a local body shop where repairs had been requested and were to be paid for in cash.

“I had emailed all of the local body shops and one of them actually responded and told me they had had that person come in looking for the car,” Amundson said.

Below is the original city-wide release requesting the public’s help in finding the suspect’s vehicle:

The Missoula Police Department is asking for help locating a hit-and-run vehicle that damaged personal property and a city light pole early in the morning of Jan. 1. The crash occurred in the 3200 block of Stephens Avenue. The vehicle was described as a white or yellow Nissan Xterra, driven by a white male described as college-aged and wearing jeans and a hooded sweatshirt. The Nissan will have front-end damage and will be missing the front grill and an outside mirror.

If you have information regarding this incident, please call the Missoula Police Department at 552-6300 and reference report number P140101-005 or call Crimestoppers at 721-4444.
