Arrest of Hit and Run Suspect involving Seven-Year-Old Victim

Arrest of Hit and Run Suspect involving Seven-Year-Old Victim
 
UPDATE:
On Tuesday February 19th, 2019, at approximately 3:30pm, the Santa Rosa Police Traffic Investigations Team arrested the suspect of the hit and run collision that occurred near Campoy Street and Louis Krohn Drive. The suspect was identified as Dominick Weaver, a 29-year-old resident of Santa Rosa.
 
The SRPD Traffic Division had received multiple tips from the public regarding this investigation. One of the tips involved surveillance video of Weaver attempting to hide the vehicle after the collision occurred. Traffic Officers conducted several days of follow-up that involved review of Weaver’s social media posts, in which he was seen driving the vehicle involved in the collision, a 2004, black BMW 645ci.
 
Traffic Investigators served a search warrant at Weaver’s residence on Broadmoor Street today in Santa Rosa. They located Weaver hiding in an upstairs bedroom. Officers also recovered the BMW at this residence. 
 
Weaver was subsequently interviewed at the police department. Weaver admitted to being involved in the collision and fleeing the scene. He was arrested for Felony Hit and Run and three outstanding warrants for his arrest.
 
The Santa Rosa Police Department would like to thank the public for sending us tips involving this case that ultimately led to the suspects arrest.
