You have probably heard one story or another about strange men or women stalking women and their children at stores. Most of these stories seem to happen outside our city. However, it seems that it is now happening in our city.
It seems that threats are being taken more seriously in the wake of the school shooting in Florida. We have had several teenagers arrested lately in the area for making threats against our schools. Yesterday, Amarillo Police were investigating a threat made towards Austin Middle School.
Since the school shootings in Florida recently, recent terroristic threats and mentions of threats on social media are being taken very seriously. Several area teenagers have been arrested for making terroristic threats against their high schools.
The Amarillo Police Department reported last week that they have taken 996 stolen vehicle reports just this year not to mention the massive amounts of car burglaries. They usually take and average 35 reports each week for car burglaries.
