KCSO has provided a photo of the suspect vehicle involved in a hit and run in Suquamish.

Man, 75, arrested in hit-and-run fatality

A 75-year-old man has been arrested on Friday Nov. 13 in connection with the fatal hit and run in Suquamish.

The man, identified as Magne Staner Svarthumle, turned himself into the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office in Port Orchard Nov. 13 after Superior Court placed a $100,000 warrant for his arrest.

Svarhumle reportedly didn’t have his glasses on while driving his late 1990’s maroon Mazda pickup, when he allegedly struck and killed 43-year-old Tricia L. Garduno.

Investigators located the vehicle, but not Svarhumle just hours after the incident, which shut down traffic.

Investigators made contact with a friend of Svarhumle, who stated that Svarhumle had said he struck a pole.

“Even though the suspect is in custody, KCSO traffic deputies will continue with the investigation. We at KCSO are grateful for the relationship with our community that provided tips that led to a quick resolution of locating the involved vehicle and identifying a suspect in connection with the tragic fatality hit-n-run collision Tuesday in Suquamish,” reads the KCSO Facebook post.

Anyone with further information is asked to call deputies Dave Green or Steve Martin at 360-337-4634.
