Hit & Run Vehicle Located

Denver Police believe they have located the vehicle involved in the hit and run accident in which Timothy Albo and Heather Kornman were injured. The accident occurred on October 3, 2010, at 20th and Chestnut Street.

The Arvada Police Department received a call from a citizen about a suspicious vehicle parked on the street in the 7700 block of W. 54th Avenue on Sunday afternoon. The responding Arvada officer contacted the Denver Police Department after seeing the story on the evening news. The follow up investigation led detectives to recover the vehicle at a Westminster address. The vehicle is a Silver Chrysler PT Cruiser. The Denver Police Department is still trying to locate witnesses that might have any information about the driver of the vehicle, or the person/persons involved in moving it from Arvada to Westminster on Sunday.

If you have any information about this accident or the recovered vehicle please contact The Denver Police Department at 720-913-2000 or call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). You can text to CRIMES (274637) then title DMCS and enter your message or send an e-mail to metro-denvercrimestoppers.com. If the information you provide leads to the arrest and charging of a wanted individual, you can receive a cash award up to $2,000.
