Time/Date: Wednesday, April 13th, 2016, about 5:10 pm

The Central Berks Regional Police Department is investigation a Hit & Run incident that happened on Wednesday, April 13th, 2016, about 5:10 pm. This Hit & Run occurred at the Turkey Hill located at 2450 Perkiomen Ave., Mt. Penn, when a plain white GMC or Chevrolet van pulled in alongside the gas pumps.
The pictured male left the van, entered the store, used the restroom, and made a purchase. The male driver of the van was described as being a light-skinned Hispanic male and he was acting strangely according to witnesses.
When the male left the store he got in to the van and departed the parking lot. The driver turned left (westbound on Perkiomen Avenue) for a few feet before abruptly turned left back towards the gas pumps, driving over the curb & sidewalk, and crashing in to the gas pumps. The suspect driver then put the van in reverse, nearly striking oncoming traffic eastbound on Perkiomen Avenue, and then is last seen traveling southbound on Pennwyn Terrace – the wrong way on a one-way street.
The van had no markings and had one or two ladders on the rack on the roof.
