AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Authorities say a van stolen from an Amarillo home earlier this week - the second time the home has been robbed this month - was recovered during a traffic stop and has been returned to the owner.
Derrick Dewayne Davis, 29, was booked into the Potter County jail Tuesday, just hours after the van was reported missing from a home on S. Parker Street. Police said Davis was driving the van when officers spotted it near the 2000 block of Paramount Blvd and was arrested for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
On March 9, police say the same residence was broken into and a safe was stolen. The safe contained personal documents, metal bars and coins, among other items. An investigation is ongoing.
