KERENS–A murder suspect from Amarillo was caught and jailed in Kerens June 15.
Kerens Police Officer Raymond Ivy responded to a call for service where he encountered Anthony Price. But Price gave a false name and then fled on foot. Ivy gave chase and set a perimeter until joined by Kerens Police Sergeart Roy Ivey.
Both officers entered into a thickly wooded area and captured Price without incident. Price refused to provide officers with his true identify and was found to be in possession with a loaded 9 mm handgun.
Price was arrested and transported to the Kerens Police Department where he was interviewed by Police Chief Miers.
Price then gave up his real identity. It was discovered that Price was being sought after by the United States Marshals Service and the Amarillo Police Department for murder.
Price was then interviewed for several house and reportedly showed no remorse for the man he killed and also confessed to shooting another man in Amarilo in April of this year. That case was being investigated by Amarillo Police but they did not have a suspect prior to the confession.
Miers was in constant contact with the U.S. Marshal, a Homicide Detective from Amarillo Police and determined the next step in the investigation.
Price was booked into the Navarro County Justice Center. Price is also being charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by felon, evading arrest detention and intent to give false information.
