Sarasota police have arrested a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run crash that killed a man back in January.

Investigators said the crash happened just before 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 22 in the area of 32 Street and US 41. Police found a 66-year-old man who had been hit and killed by a vehicle, where the driver failed to stop and instead continued driving north on US 41.

Using red light camera footage, officers saw a vehicle with damage to the front right panel and windshield passing through a traffic light at US 41 and University Parkway.

Investigators located registration information and found the suspect vehicle, a 2001 Volkswagen, which matched the make and model of evidence left at the scene of the crash.

Officers towed the vehicle to the Sarasota Police Department to conduct a search warrant. They found a Taco Bell receipt inside the car and took DNA swabs from the steering wheel.

In March, police identified the driver of the vehicle the night of the crash as 29-year-old Leyonna Dunbar of Bradenton. DNA swabs taken from the steering wheel matched Dunbar's DNA in April.

Dunbar is charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a crash involving death, and driving with a suspended license.

Police did not identify the 66-year-old victim.
