RANDALL COUNTY, TX (KFDA) - Amarillo police say a third person sought during a murder-for-hire investigation has been arrested and booked into jail.

Tyree Sanford was found exiting a home in the 4200 block of S. Tyler Street Wednesday. An Amarillo Police Department officer arrested him and booked him into the Randall County jail on arson warrant, stemming from a 2014 investigation in which a semi-tractor was burned near a home in a rural county area.

Authorities believe the burned tractor was owned by the intended victim of a murder-for-hire case. Two other people, Kimber Eisenhaur, 34, and Billy Glenn Ivy Jr., 49, have already been arrested in the same investigation.
