AMARILLO – Wednesday morning, Amarillo Police responded to a call about a homeowner catching someone going through a truck in a garage in the 6500 block of Sierra Ct.
The homeowner told police that in between trips to load his truck, he found 18-year-old Colton Steen Nabors in the garage going through his vehicle.
Nabors claimed he just scared someone else off and was making sure nothing was missing from the vehicle but proceeded to walk very quickly away from the residence.
The homeowner caught up to Nabors in Nabors’ vehicle before he was able to drive away.
The homeowner had video surveillance on his garage and showed officers the footage that showed the one suspect who was in custody entering the garage. Officers located other items in the suspect’s vehicle that were believed to have been stolen in other burglaries or auto burglaries. Officers did locate one other victim and their property was returned to them.
Other possible stolen items (electronic devices & numerous hand and power tools) were taken from the suspect’s vehicle and booked as evidence until owners are located.
Nabors was arrested on one charge of Burglary of a Habitation and one count of Burglary of a Motor Vehicle. Nabors was also charged with a Class C Misdemeanor charge of Minor in Consumption of Alcohol.
Nabors was booked into the Randall County Jail.
If the other seized property can be identified as being stolen, additional charges are possible.
