BLACKHAWK – A $5,000 reward is being offered for the identity of a suspect that allegedly drove through a building in Blackhawk’s commercial office complex before hitting two other vehicles in August.
The reward, being offered by an insurance company, is for the positive identification and arrest of the suspect.
At around 10:00 pm on Friday, August 18th, the Dublin office of the California Highway Patrol was dispatched to a report of a vehicle accident into a building in the 3800 block of Blackhawk Drive.
A Sheriff’s Deputy assigned to the Blackhawk area was the first at the scene and found major damage to the commercial office building. Soon after, officers with the Danville Police Department were dispatched to a report of a hit and run on Center Way near McDonalds.
The suspect in both incidents is believed to be the same. The suspect vehicle was described as a newer-model Land Rover with paper plates. It was later towed by an unknown tow company from Indian Rice Road in San Ramon before deputies could locate it.
The suspect is described as a white male in his early 50’s wearing a floral Hawaiian shirt, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Authorities say a white female passenger, possibly named “Gloria,” was also in the car at the time of the incidents.
Witnesses reported seeing the man waving down cars on Crow Canyon Road, near the accident scene.
The Sheriff’s Office is requesting that anyone with information about the vehicle, which sustained major damage, its occupants, the tow truck company or driver of the tow truck, contact the Blackhawk Police Department at (925) 736-1018.
