Update, 12:04 p.m.:
Detectives said they have located "a person of interest" in Monday night's fatal hit and run and charged him with driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.
A witness at the scene of the crash in the 3100 block of West Hillsborough Avenue, in which a Central Tampa resident and bicyclist was killed, provided officers with a description of the suspect's vehicle, a white 2006 Chevy Trailblazer SUV, and its Florida license plate number.
"Once officers ran the tag, they set up surveillance at the registered vehicle owner's home," a Tampa Police spokesperson wrote in a media release.
When the suspect arrived home at 12:30 a.m., detectives questioned and charged him. The suspect's identity has not been released.
The SUV had front-end damage "consistent with hitting a cyclist," according to officials. The vehicle was also wet, indicating it was recently washed. Detectives said they believe the suspect used a self-serve car wash and are asking car wash businesses within a several-mile radius of Columbus Drive and North Boulevard to examine their surveillance video from Monday night, between 8:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Tampa Police Department at 813-231-6130 or Crime Stoppers at 800-873-TIPS.
