AMARILLO -- Early Sunday morning, Amarillo Police were dispatched to Gebo’s on a Burglary alarm.
Officers arrived two minutes later and found the front door broken out. Officers searched inside but the suspect had fled. Using the security footage, officers got a detailed suspect description and sent it out to other officers on shift. It was also believed that the suspect had stolen a rifle out of a gun case within the store.
An officer on another call near 45th and Tucson, observed a male subject running across the street carrying what appeared to be a rifle.
Paul Fredrick Kayser, 22, was finally taken into custody after a short foot chase and after the suspect fought with arresting officers.
After a search of the area, officers located a Colt 22 caliber rifle where the suspect was first seen crossing the road. The rifle was later identified as belonging to Gebo’s and was returned to the store.
Kayser was arrested and booked into Randall County on a charge of Burglary of a Building, Evading Arrest/Detention, and Resisting Arrest/Search/Transport.
