Two Men Arrested at Red Roof Inn for Drugs and Guns

Two men were arrested over the weekend for drugs and guns.

Amarillo Police were sent to the Red Roof Inn on I-40, where they observed a suspicious vehicle. The occupant, Jessie Franklin, attempted to hide a bag of methamphetamine when officers approached the vehicle. He was taken into custody.

The officers then turned their attention to the the room Franklin had been staying in. The male inside the room, Christopher Keen, jumped on the bed and attempted to hide another bag containing meth. Beside him on the bedside table was a gun. The officers talked him down and eventually arrested him as well. Both Franklin and Keen were booked into Potter County.

Xcel Reports Mother's Day Scams

Xcel is reporting more scams contacting customers in Texas and New Mexico, threatening to disconnect power if payment isn't made over the phone. Wes Reeves says this kind of activity usually picks up before special holidays, like Mother's Day.
 
"Holidays are times when people are busy. They catch you at a bad time and say hey, someone is on their way to turn your power off because you're behind on your bill," Reeves said.
 
Last year, several florists reported scams near the Mother's Day rush, as well as restaurants.
