Rewards totaling $15,000, including $10,000 from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and $5,000 from the Ralphs Corporation, are being offered for information leading to the capture and subsequent arrest and conviction of a suspect wanted for the hit-and-run death of Marina del Rey resident Patrick Conarpe.
The $10,000 reward offered by the Board of Supervisors has been established through Supervisor Don Knabe’s office. If the reward is given, the money will be dispersed equally from the five county supervisorial district offices, Knabe spokesman David Sommers said.
The Board of Supervisors voted to approve the establishment of the $10,000 reward Tuesday, December 5th.
Conarpe, an employee of the Ralphs supermarket in the Waterside Marina del Rey shopping center, died in a hit-and-run accident at Mindanao and Admiralty Ways in the Marina, October 28th.
Conarpe was walking westbound in the crosswalk when he was struck by a vehicle traveling southbound on Admiralty Way, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
The vehicle then fled from the scene, according to the CHP.
California Highway Patrol investigators are requesting help from any witnesses to the collision or anyone who has information regarding the suspect’s vehicle and/or the suspect.
The CHP believes the suspect’s vehicle to be a light-colored sedan. The vehicle is described as possibly being an Infiniti-style sedan with front-end damage.
Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to call CHP investigator Dan Morrison at (310) 642-3939 ext. 244.
