AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -- A routine traffic stop led to a brief police chase and the recovery of a stolen vehicle Monday, the Potter County Sheriff's Office said.

Gary Miller, 48, is currently booked into the Potter County Detention Center for outstanding warrants and a felony evasion charge.

Deputies say Miller was stopped on Interstate 40 Monday afternoon for cutting too close to a vehicle he passed on the highway. Miller sped away from the traffic stop, according to officials, eventually exiting on Soncy St. and later pulling into a parking lot.

Officials say the 2011 Dodge Durango Miller was driving was reported as stolen through the Waxahachie Police Department in Texas. Miller also had outstanding warrants for Theft and Damage to Property out of Arkansas and Missouri.
