Sunday night around 9:15, Randall County deputies engaged in a high-speed chase with a white GMC pickup. Deputies were called to Eskimo Hut at I-27 and McCormick road, on a report that suspects who were involved in a home burglary in Amarillo were at the store. Deputies saw the pickup when they arrived, but those in the pickup took off.
The deputy pursued the vehicle for a short distance until it became too dangerous to continue.
About 30 minutes later, a DPS trooper spotted the pickup at Rockwell Road and Greg Street, and again a chase followed. When the suspects drove through fences on private property on JJ Street, the trooper lost sight of the pickup.
A few minutes after the second pursuit, deputies found the GMC pickup abandoned behind some trees at a home in the 16000 block of Abby Road.
The pickup was found to be stolen out of Hereford from a home burglary on Saturday.
Randall County Deputies, DPS Troopers and the DPS helicopter searched the area but were unable to find the suspects.

Here is a link to radio traffic during Sunday's two high speed chases, courtesy of Webbfeat Productions. At one point, you can hear authorities say they "lost them" as the suspects sent DPS and the Randall County Sheriff's office on a chase through fields and yards.
The Department of Public Safety and the Randall County Sheriff's Department are searching for three suspects who burglarized an Amarillo home, stole a truck in Hereford, and sent both departments on a high speed chase.
Preliminary information shows a Primer Gr a y Ford Truck was stolen from Hereford by three suspects around 5 p.m. The suspects then drove to Amarillo and DPS tells our crew on scene that they tried to burglarize a home in Amarillo. The man whose home they tried to burglarize noticed the stolen truck from Hereford , and he saw it later at the Eskimo Hut off McCormick and I-27.
The man then called the Sheriff's department, which showed up at the Eskimo Hut. That's when the suspects took off in the truck and a chase ensued. The suspects headed toward Rockwell and Greg; however, the suspects started going through yards and fences, so DPS and Randall County called off the chase because it was too dangerous.
About 20 minutes later, DPS found the truck driving around, and another chase ensued. This chase was also called off because the suspects were going though fields and not staying on the roads.
Later, DPS found the truck hidden behind some trees. They called in the DPS helicopter to find the suspects, who they say were now on foot.
Officers are looking in the area of Grimes Circle near abandoned mobile homes and Lakeview Elementary. At the time of publishing, DPS and Randall County Sheriff 's department have not caught the suspects.
