AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - A man with multiple theft-related warrants was arrested Tuesday evening after police say his vehicle was recognized by an officer as being associated with a wanted criminal.

At around 10:15 p.m., police say the officer noticed the black Cadillac Escalade, and ran the plates to discover they were issued to a different vehicle.

Officers pulled over the driver, 23 year-old Colby Lynn Wright, in the 2900 block of South Marrs.

Wright was arrested for two outstanding warrants for credit/debit card abuse and burglary of a motor vehicle.

Officers say they also found a prohibited weapon in the vehicle, for which Wright faced an additional charge.  He was booked into the Randall County jail.
