I was on a binge-watching spree of COPS the other day and wondered if I could find any episodes featuring Amarillo. It's interesting to see where in Amarillo where these adventures take place. So, got on YouTube and gave it a nice searching. You've got to check out these gems that I found.

FLEA FOR ALL

This clip takes place at the T-Anchor flea market. Three people are found inside the building stealing items from different vendors. My favorite part is when the officer being interviewed starts talking about how he feels if one of his K-9 doggies get hit by a suspect. Tell me you don't absolutely love the fact that someone can be charged with "tampering with a canine".

MR NICE GUY

This clip features a chatty guy on a mission to have a peaceful life. Cops think it might be a DUI stop but realize the guy is just a nice guy--a little strange, maybe...but it's Amarillo, after all. I got a kick out of this guy, especially when he started telling his life story! I always love a happy ending, and we all know that there's rarely a happy ending to be had on a COPS show.

GRAVITY

This clip APD is dispatched to a suspicious vehicle parked in the back of a church. When he arrives, he finds two occupants in the car. Take a gander at what happens next.

Amarillo On 'America's Most Wanted'

I was surprised to find out recently that we also have a bit of a history with the show America's Most Wanted.

Digging through old news articles, I found several separate occasions where Amarillo and America's Most Wanted crossed paths. It makes me wonder if there are some that I've missed.
