AMARILLO, TEXAS - A car jacking suspect is behind bars Wednesday afternoon after an incident early in the morning.

Police say 28 year old Jeffrey Wilkins walked up to a man at the Wal Mart at I-40 and Grand just before seven and asked for a ride to Oklahoma City.

After the man told Wilkins he was not going to Oklahoma City, Wilkins reportedly returned with a gun and made the man get out of his truck.

About a half hour later, a DPS trooper spotted the truck on I-40 in Carson County and arrested Wilkins.

He is currently in the Carson County jail.
