On 12/20/2013 at about 5:45pm, Deputies were dispatched to the 400 block of La Florida St. in Canutillo in reference to a hit and run that had just occurred. A witness to the crash followed a grey Mercedes Benz to La Florida St. and called the Sheriff’s Office. It was reported that the Mercedes Benz had struck several vehicles in the parking lot located at the 6800 block of Doniphan. When Deputies arrived, they made contact with the driver of the vehicle at his residence on La Florida and also located the Mercedes Benz (with damage).
