A driver was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run crash that seriously injured a mother of two in Encinitas, San Diego County sheriff's officials announced Friday.
After compiling evidence and witness tips, sheriff's officials identified the driver as 38-year-old Justin Parker of Encinitas.
Sheriff's officials said: "A search warrant was served on Mr. Parker's residence in Encinitas. Numerous items of evidence were located at the residence. Deputies also located two large-capacity rifle magazines in his house. Another search warrant was served at a custom automotive shop in the city of Riverside. Mr. Parker's truck was located at the shop. Although the truck had already been repaired additional evidence was located."
And this was probably the reason for that helicopter circling over Encinitas Boulevard and Rosebay early in the morning of Oct 3.
Looks like the sentence guidelines are 2 - 4 years for hit-and-run with serious injury, and the fact that he went all the way to Riverside to cover up the crime after he had time to think about it is not going to help.
Fox 5 identifies Justin Walt Parker, which matches the name of a stockbroker with two recent formal customer complaints to regulators, one minor but one very serious (of course, meritless complaints can be made by crackpots, but the allegations of churning and selling high-commission UITs to unsuspecting clients are not uncommon among the shadier sort of stockbroker. If your stockbroker ever tries to sell you a UIT or a non-traded REIT, be aware that he's getting a huge commission coming straight out of your pocket, and there are almost certainly better investment choices for you).
