Two Arrested for Witness Tampering in Vancouver Hit & Run

Written by FM News 101 KXL on January 25, 2014


VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) – Police in Vancouver have arrested two people for investigation of witness tampering in connection with a hit-and-run that left two women dead.

Sgt. Troy Price said in a news release Saturday that 63-year-old Linda Smith and 21-year-old Kalista Andino had been taken into custody, and more arrests are expected.

Two women, 28-year-old Irina Gardinant and 45-year-old Raisa Mosh, were reportedly run down in a crosswalk on truck Northeast Vancouver Mall Drive Jan. 19 by a white pickup truck. Mosh’s 12-year-old son suffered minor injures.

Following the collision, Vancouver police launched a public campaign to find the white pickup, as well as a black pickup that drove by shortly afterward.

A white pickup with front-end damage was discovered at an apartment garage nearby, and the owner has refused to cooperate.

Smith and Andino were booked into the Clark County Jail. It was not immediately clear whether they had obtained lawyers.

    And why is the owner not named here? They are as owners part of the case. Its murder very simple to see leaving two people dead that were in the right. Bet none of them are not very up close and known by the law either. Like I say hang em high
