Two Stabbed at Westgate Mall

A 16 year old boy has been captured for the stabbing at Westgate Mall.

At 1:40 p.m. Friday, APD officers were dispatched to the 7700 block on Canode on a vandalism and trespass in progress where the caller had caught a male and female suspect. The two juveniles took off and entered the Mall near JC Penny's, heading for the food court area.

A female employee of the food court stepped out to see what was happening and was stabbed by the male suspect. One security officer in the Bealls department store was stabbed by the male before a citizen struck him with a chair. Both victims sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The male suspect was transported to local hospital but will be taken to the Youth Center of the High Plains afterward.

Shooting at 12th and Heather

No arrests were made after a shooting at 12th and Heather Friday.
 
At 12:30 p.m. Friday, officers responded to the intersection where the 26 year old victim was shot in the leg and arm. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
 
Preliminary information indicates that the shooting was the result of a dispute that started at a home in the area between the victim and an 25 year old male. The suspect fled the area driving a black Mercury and has not been located so far. Police are still investigating.

Gunshot Wounded Man Taken to North West Texas Hospital

A man with a gunshot wound was transported to North West Texas Hospital Friday.

At 1:45 a.m. Friday, officers were sent to the hospital, finding a white male had been brought there in a Buick 4 Door. The man was suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the upper left chest.

The man was stabilized, and the other two Buick passengers and the driver are not suspects. They reported picking the man up on Virginia street after finding him bleeding.

If you have information about the incident, call the Amarillo Police Department at 378-3038.

Meth Bust Near Conway Yields $623K

A traffic stop on I-40 Thursday afternoon yielded almost two-thirds of a million dollars worth of methamphetamine.  
 
A DPS trooper made the stop near Conway for a traffic violation. During a search of the vehicle, the trooper found 15 bags of meth, worth over $623,000, in the car's rocker panels.  Two men were booked into Carson county on a first-degree felony charge of possession of a controlled substance.  
 
The drugs were reportedly being taken from Phoenix to Oklahoma City.

Sutherlands Burglary

Two men were arrested after an early morning burglary in south Amarillo.  

Around 12:45 a.m. Friday, officers saw a vehicle parked out of sight behind Sutherlands on south Washington. No one was inside, so the officers decided to stakeout the area.  Two hours later, two suspects parked nearby and were stopped.  

After further investigation, officers found that the two had crawled under a fence at Sutherlands and broke into an outbuilding. 19-year old's Richard David Hartman and Jesus Armando Valencia were booked into Randall county for burglary of a building.

Stolen Auto Incident Leads to Narcotics Arrest

A stolen automobile accident led to a narcotics arrest.

Around noon Wednesday, officers were sent to the 900 block of Bryan where the victim stated that someone had stolen his white 1995 Chevrolet Suburban. Just before 11 in the evening, officers observed the Suburban sitting in an alley in the 200 block of Mississippi.

After the officers ran the VIN on the vehicle, the driver was removed from the vehicle and found what appeared to be methamphetamine in the driver's seat area. Walter Jason Ray, 41, was arrested for five different charges including possession of a controlled substance and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

One other passenger was also arrested - Antwon Lee Brown, 30, for probation violation, violence against a family member and for failure to identify. Both were booked into the Potter County Correction Center.

Traffic Stop Yields $86K

A traffic stop on I-40 led to the seizure of almost $86,000.
 
Just before 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, a DPS trooper made the stop near Groom for a traffic violation. During the stop, the trooper found a concealed compartment containing three bundles of U.S. currency.  
 
Nathaniel Medina, 30, of Easton, Pennsylvania was booked into Carson county on a third-degree felony charge of money laundering. The concealed cash was reportedly being taken from L.A. to Brooklyn, New York.

USDA Proposal Worries Cattlemen

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, a division of USDA, has proposed allowing fresh beef from Argentina to be imported into the United States. On the KGNC Golden Spread Agribusiness Update, the president of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association said the organization is working to prevent the APHIS proposal from being implemented. Pete Bonds said TSCRA is concerned that introducing Argentinean beef to the U.S. will create the potential for an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. A comments period is underway regarding the APHIS proposal. If you would like more information and an opportunity to submit comments, go here  https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2014/08/29/2014-20643/importation-of-beef-from-a-region-in-argentina

Cotton Program Sign-Up

Farmers can now enroll in the Cotton Transition Assistance Program. CTAP will provide cotton farmers in the 2014 crop year with interim payments until USDA can begin offering the new insurance product known as the Stacked Income Protection Plan, which was created in the new Farm Bill.

Water Regulation Proposals Controversial

Many in agriculture are concerned about what is commonly referred to as “The Waters of the U.S. Rule.” This “rule” involves the Clean Water Act, and what many fear is an attempt by EPA to reinterpret the Act in ways that would make even small bodies of water like ditches and ponds subject to regulation and thereby impose new restrictions on common agricultural practices like fertilizer and herbicide application. A public comments period regarding the Clean Water Act proposals is open through Oct. 20.
