Police in Butler Township asked the public for help identifying a man they say is a suspect in a hit-and-run incident in Lavelle recently.

They say the man frequents the Turkey Hill in Lavelle and that’s where the incident happened at around 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

Here’s the surveillance photo they’re sharing, hoping someone can identify him:

In addition to being a regular at the Turkey Hill in Lavelle, the suspect also drives a black, square body Dodge Dakota. Police believe it’s a 90s model truck.

That would be something similar to this shape (Note: this is not the suspect’s actual truck.):
