Hit and run tip misleading
February 20. 2013 12:15AM
According to Wilkes-Barre police, someone overheard a conversation about a damaged vehicle and called police. But the information had nothing to do with the Dec. 21 incident that claimed the life of Miller.
Police have been searching for a red Pontiac believed to be the vehicle that struck and killed Miller as he crossed West North Street with his father. Hawkeye Security Systems and private surveillance cameras recorded a red vehicle, possibly a Pontiac sedan, on Jackson Street and North Pennsylvania Boulevard minutes after the young boy was struck.
City police said the red car has a sunroof or moon roof and may have front end damage. Police have examined dozens of red Pontiac sedans since the incident.
LAG towing and Transport owner Leo Glodzik III and City Wide Towing and Repair owner Bob Kadluboski have separately set up reward funds for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who struck Miller.
Glodzik established his fund at PNC Bank and donated $1,000 and Kabluboski said three businesses he declined to name pledged $1,500 at First National Community Bank.
