The famous detective Sherlock Holmes would have been proud of how Pasco Officer Jeremy Jones found a hit & run suspect this weekend.

Police received a report of a hit & run accident near Pearl Street and North 15th Avenue. When Officer Jones arrived at the scene, he found a large dark puddle of engine fluid where the accident happened, but did not find the alleged car.

However, there was a very visible trail of fluid leading from the scene of the accident to in front of a house a block and a half a way.

After finding the car, police contacted the alleged driver J. Martinez-Gutierrez of Pasco, arrested and booked him in Franklin County jail for hit-and-run along with outstanding warrant.
