Members of the U.S. Marshals Service arrested a Vancouver man Wednesday in connection with a deadly hit-and-run on Christmas in Portland.

Jared L. Landry, 37, was booked on a warrant into the Clark County Jail pending extradition to Multnomah County, Ore. Investigators also seized the suspect vehicle, a red Ram pickup, in December from a Vancouver apartment complex, according to a Portland Police Bureau news release.

On Jan. 12, a Multnomah County grand jury returned an indictment against Landry for failure to perform the duties of a driver resulting in death, attempt to elude police, recklessly endangering another person and reckless driving, the news release states.

Officials previously identified the victim as David Wayne Becker, 63, of Portland.

At 12:19 a.m. Dec. 25, an off-duty Portland police officer came across a pedestrian who’d been struck on Southeast Stark Street at 106th Avenue. The driver had left the scene of the crash, the police bureau said.

The officer called 911 and provided aid. Becker was taken to a hospital via ambulance, but he was later declared dead, according to the news release.
