Sean Hawk, the possibly armed fugitive suspect in a fatal hit-and-run earlier this month, has been reeled in by the California Highway Patrol.
Hawk is wanted as a person of interest in a Feb. 10 incident on State Route 96 that left Orleans resident Virgil Martin dead. He almost turned himself in last week.
On Saturday, Feb. 23, at 5:43 p.m., after a tipster had called the Yreka CHP office, a CHP officer arrested Hawk out on the Ti Bar Road, according to a news release from Humboldt CHP. Humboldt CHP officers brought down to jail in Eureka.
