Standoff At Amarillo Motel 6, Suspect Still At Large
Amarillo police descended on the Motel 6 on Paramount Boulevard yesterday attempting to nab a wanted felon.
27-year-old Cameron Cecil Cooks is wanted by Amarillo police for warrants related to Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Aggravated Robbery. The warrants were issued in 2014.
Acting on information that placed Cooks at the Motel 6, the Amarillo police department contacted by telephone a female that was in the room. She eventually came out. After interviewing the woman they still could not determine for certain if Cooks was in the room or not. As a precautionary measure the SWAT team and Bomb squads were called to the scene.
A robot was deployed into the room and it was determined around 3:30pm the room was empty and Cooks was no where in the area.
Cooks is described by police as being 5'9" tall and around 165 pounds.
If you know his whereabouts contact the APD or Amarillo Crime Stoppers at 374-4400.
