On Saturday, June 29th, just before 1 a.m., Lubbock police officers responded to a motorcycle crash on 19th Street near Avenue S. The driver, 24-year-old Robert Macias Jr., was taken by EMS to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

As the investigation continued, detectives with LPD’s Major Crash Investigation Unit were able to determine the motorcycle had rear ended a pickup truck. The driver of the pickup truck had failed to stop and render aid to Macias and fled the area before officers arrived.

Investigators continued to gather evidence and were able to identify the pickup as an older model Chevrolet. On July 2nd, crash investigators canvassed several neighborhoods and located the involved pickup truck at a home in the 2300 block of 28th Street.

By July 3rd, investigators were able to secure arrest warrants for both Robert and Jeremiah. LPD patrol officers arrested both later that day.
