South Amarillo SWAT standoff suspect in custody

Amarillo, TX - SWAT and other law enforcement officials have arrested Christopher Blake Yost at a home near Hillside and Bell.

The streets swarmed with more 20 police, deputies, and SWAT crewmen after a tip came into 911 around 1:15 that a fugitive was hiding inside the house.

The Randall County Sheriff's department came to serve him a warrant this morning and they say he took off running.

He apparently came back to his mothers house. That's when the neighbors spotted him.

For three hours officers waited for the suspect to come out, but eventually they went in and got him, bringing him straight through the front door and into jail.

He is expected to face additional charges.
