Monday afternoon, an Amarillo police officer was flagged down by a male victim at SW 3rd Avenue and Alabama Street. The victim told officers that a male suspect had just stolen a gun from him and pointed to a white Buick car that was driving westbound on SW 3rd.
The officer pursued the suspect into a parking lot at SW 6th and Kentucky. The suspect reversed the vehicle, struck the front of the patrol car, then drove away refusing to stop.
Officers pursued the suspect through the San Jacinto Neighborhood and to the intersection of SW 15th and Lipscomb, where the suspect exited the vehicle and fled on foot. The suspect was detained after a short foot pursuit and identified as 34 year old Daniel Mosher.
The suspect was in possession of the stolen firearm and several prescription pills not belonging to him. Mosher was found to have a Parole Warrant for Aggravated Robbery and the white 1990 Buick car that he fled from officers in had been reported stolen on March 27 in Amarillo.
Mosher was arrested for Evading Arrest with a Vehicle, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, Unauthorized us of a Vehicle, Theft of a Firearm, Evading arrest/Detention, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and his Parole Warrant for the original charge of Aggravated Robbery. He was booked into the Potter County Detention Center.
No injuries were reported from the incident.
