Police say evidence at the scene such as car parts and tips from the public led to the arrest of Beechley. The car in the hit-and-run was also recovered in Aurora where the suspect lives.

“In this particular case, the information we received, once we started to develop that information, took us right to a certain location, and a certain person,” Sgt. Mike Farr with Denver police said.
