Amarillo police arrest 3 people suspected of multiple auto burglaries

Early Monday morning, Amarillo police officers were dispatched to the 4600 block of Van Winkle on a vehicle alarm going off. At 3:15 AM, a call came into the dispatch center of three subjects on foot in the area of Easley and Plymouth.

As officers were driving around they noticed several vehicles that had interior lights on in the area that had possibly been broken into. The original caller had tried to follow the subjects, but lost them as they were going between houses.

Officers saw three subjects enter the alley of the 4600 block of Aberdeen. They did not locate the subjects, but did find several items of property that had been left on the ground in the alleyway of the 4800 block of Aberdeen.

As the officers were contacting home owners to see if they were missing property, an older model Chevrolet pickup exited a driveway and drove out of the alley. There were three people in the vehicle that were all wearing dark clothing.

The vehicle was stopped for traffic violations and the subjects were identified as Stephanie Danielle Price, 19, Arthur Keaghan Barclay, 18, and Braden Harley Beard, 18. Several items that were being reported missing by home owners were located in the vehicle.

The three suspects were linked to multiple auto burglaries in the area. Price, Barclay and Beard were all arrested for Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity. Beard was also charged with Possession of Prohibited Weapons (brass knuckles).

All three were booked into the Randall County Jail.
