California Police Department Locates Suspect
Vehicle with Assistance of Auto Glass Industry Representatives
April 15, 2011
The police department in Oceanside, Calif., has located a suspect
vehicle that they believe may have been involved in a recent hit-and-run,
thanks to the assistance of glassBYTEs.com/AGRR
magazine readers who assisted with the investigation. Officer Mark
Edgren had announced earlier this week, via
glassBYTEs.com, that the Oceanside Police Department was looking
for a red 1990 Honda Accord (four-door) that had its windshield
replaced on the day of a fatal hit-and-run on March 28.
"The vehicle, and the business which installed the windshield,
have been located," says Edgren. "... I also wanted to
say thanks to [editor] Penny [Stacey] for running an article in
AGRR magazine [on its daily news service, www.glassBYTEs.com].
Thanks again to the [auto glass replacement] community for a job
The search came about as a result of "an anonymous tip from
someone who said that this car had likely been involved," according
to Edgren. The police believed that the windshield had been replaced
shortly after the accident.
The accident occurred on March 28 and the 18-year-old victim passed
away on March 29, according to information from the Oceanside Police
Edgren was not available for further comment at press time.
