APD Recovers Items After Arresting Suspects for Reportedly Breaking Into Vehicles

The Amarillo Police Department has recovered several items after arresting two suspects for suspected burglary.

APD reports that officers were called to an apartment complex in the 4400 block of South Bell on the report of two suspicious people in the parking lot. An officer saw a gold Honda Accord leaving the parking lot at a high rate of speed. The officer tried to pull the vehicle over and the driver refused. The DPS helicopter helped follow the driver to the intersection at South Park and Palacio.

A male and female got out of the car and ran on foot. Officers detained Brandon Burk, 23, and Kaelyn Robinson, 25, in the 6700 block of Palacio. Burk, the driver of the vehicle, was arrested for evading arrest or detention with a vehicle. Robinson was arrested for evading arrest or detention and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Officers found items in the suspect's car from three burglaries and found "identifying information for a victim of an auto burglary that had been reported the day before in the 4400 block of Coulter Street and a debit card belonging to a victim from an auto burglary that happened in the 6900 block of IH-40 West on July 4th," according to the Amarillo Police Department.

Burk and Robinson were booked into the Randall County Jail.
