The second suspect wanted for his involvement in a pair of hit and run incidents in Jasper Monday morning as been identified and remains at-large.

Jasper Police say warrants have been issued for 30-year old Shawn Archie who’s address is unknown at this time.

Jasper Police say at around 8 am Monday a 2006 Dodge Charger was northbound along the 1300 block of Mill Street when police say the Charger struck and totaled a parked and unoccupied pickup that belonging to 67-year old Teddy Foster of Jasper.

Police say in the process debris from the impact with Foster’s truck struck another vehicle that belonged to 17-year old Haleigh Foster that was parked nearby.

Haleigh Foster’s car sustained only 100 dollars damage.

Police say Archie and the other suspect who is in custody and has cooperated with authorities then fled the scene and headed westbound on 14th Street and failed to stop at the intersection of 14th and Main Streets before attempting to make a right hand turn onto Main Street.

Police say at that time the Charger struck the curb as well as a fire hydrant owned by the City of Jasper causing roughly $4,500 in damages.

Police say the hydrant was thrown from the sidewalk into a garage door at a home located along the 1400 block of Main Street which sustained about $300 in damages. They say the Charger then spun around in a nearby lawn causing another $200 in damages. Police say the men fled the scene on foot at that point.
