Shortly before 3 a.m. the Colorado Bureau of Investigation issued a Medina Alert for a 2001 red Chevy sedan with license plate number BFO-065.
Medina alerts are issued for vehicles wanted after hit-and-run crashes.
The alert is named for valet driver Jose Medina who was killed in a hit-and-run in 2011. A taxi driver witnessed the event, followed the driver and provided the license plate number to police which led to the capture and arrest of the suspect.
