On Tuesday, March 5, at about 7:30 p.m. Officer James White and Kyle Gomes while on patrol, observed a red Ford F-150 with damage to its passenger side mirror, in the area of the Narrows Bridge. This vehicle matched the description of the one which had struck a woman on Marion Road Monday night and fled the scene.

Mr. Randon was transported to police headquarters where he was questioned by detectives regarding the accident on Monday night. As a result of that investigation, Mr. Randon will be facing additional charges for leaving the scene.
