Posted: October 22, 2013 - 1:53pm  |  Updated: October 23, 2013 - 12:07am

Police said a man turned himself in for crashing a car into a utility box after hearing that the crime he committed was the subject of the latest Crime Line report.

Lt. Kris Sell said the 19-year-old went to the Juneau Police Department on Tuesday and confessed to being the hit-and-run driver police were searching for.

Charges against the man are pending. His name was not released.

JPD and the Crime Line on Monday highlighted the Oct. 14 hit-and-run on Taku Boulevard as their “Crime of the Week,” saying the driver who fled the scene caused approximately $12,500 worth of damage to phone, cable and electrical equipment.

Normally, the Crime Line offers cash rewards for tipsters who aid in police investigations. Sell said the man in this case will not be eligible for the award.

Police said the investigation is continuing.
