Amarillo police arrest man on several charges after traffic stop

Friday evening, Amarillo police officers received a call from a person following a white Ford F-250 with a utility bed. 

The caller told officers that this vehicle had been involved in a theft of his trailer on a previous date. This vehicle also matches the description of one that had been reported as being involved in multiple thefts in and around the Amarillo area. 

Officers caught up to the vehicle in the 3500 block of Mockingbird Lane and initiated a stop. James Brandon Lewis, 44, was the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle. 

Lewis was found to have a Parole Violation warrant for his arrest. 

Inside of the vehicle, officers located a handgun, methamphetamine, several sets of car keys, tools commonly used in catalytic converters thefts, and several pieces of identifying information not belonging to Lewis. 

Lewis was arrested for his Parole Violation Warrant, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and Possession of a Controlled Substance and booked into the Randall County Jail. 

The investigation is ongoing and further charges may be filed.
