Amarillo Police/DPS Searching For Suspect After Morning Chase

No suspect was located and the investigation continues.
AMARILLO -- Amarillo Police and DPS are searching for a suspect after an early morning chase.

Around 8:00 this morning, a DPS trooper working I-40 attempted to stop a silver 2010 Chevrolet pickup that had been reported as stolen from a local Allsups in Canyon. 

The driver of the stolen vehicle refused to stop and began to flee from the trooper going northbound on I-27. 

Once reaching Amarillo, the fleeing vehicle left I-27 and began to travel through residential streets. The trooper backed off because the chase was becoming too hazardous and lost the vehicle. 

A few minutes later a citizen reported seeing a silver pickup crash and the driver fled. 

The location of the crash was in the alley on Lipscomb between 19th and 20th street. 

Law enforcement determined it was the stolen pickup and began to look through the neighborhood for the suspect.
