DRUGS/HIT AND RUN
HANNUM ROAD: A 50-year-old man wanted in a Wednesday hit and run was found and ticketed Thursday morning near the scene of the incident. While patrolling around the residence of the suspect, deputies spotted someone who fit his description get into the passenger side of a Jeep that drove away at the sight of law enforcement. Deputies stopped the car for failure to maintain a single lane of traffic, at which point they identified the man as the person they were looking for in the hit and run. A police dog indicated on the car and found one oxycodone pill in the driver’s purse, a 66-year-old woman. She was ticketed for possession of a controlled substance and he was issued three tickets for his involvement in the hit and run Wednesday, Sheriff Scott Matheny said.
