Crime Stoppers Needs Your Help

Crime Stoppers needs your help to solve the following crimes. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without the help of the community. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to solve these cases.

Accidents happen, but hit and runs are unacceptable. If you were driving on Rattan Road around the time of this incident and saw something, please tell us what you know. Help detectives identify the driver or the vehicle, and help bring closure to the family. If you were the driver of this vehicle, we suggest you turn yourself in as the justice system will definitely take that into consideration.
