Personal Safety

Small business owners in the Amarillo area are being targeted by robbers. The problem has prompted the Amarillo Police Department to issue an alert. Two men have been targeting local business owners as they leave work, often with a bank deposit, to make their way home.

One of the two men is usually armed with a gun...and in the most recent case...officials say the victim was shot by the suspects. But it's not just business owners that need to be on the lookout, whether your a business owner or just a private citizen be aware of your surroundings.

If you are being followed police say you should not try to out run them...and you should never go home. Stay on well traveled roads and pull over at the nearest convenience store or business that is open. If your in trouble you can pull right up to the front doors of the police department.
