Felon arrested after joint effort

TEMPLE, TX (Nov. 22, 2018) – The Temple Police Department in coordination with other agencies has arrested Jerry Keith Reed, 27, on multiple felony warrants.

Temple PD worked with the United States Marshals Lonestar Fugitive Task Force and the FBI Task Force on a joint operation to locate and arrest Reed on Nov. 21. Reed had a felony warrant for family violence out of Bell County and a federal warrant for felon in possession of a firearm.

Reed is also suspected of involvement in recent firearm-related activities in Temple. Those investigations are still active and more information will be released as it is available.

Agents received information Thursday that Reed was in the area of Eighth Street and East Adams Avenue in Temple in a black BMW. The suspect then traveled to the 600 block of North Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard before abandoning the vehicle and fleeing on foot.

A Temple K-9 unit tracked Reed to a residence in the 400 block of North Sixth Street where he surrendered without incident.

Temple PD would like to thank all of the officers and agencies involved who helped get this wanted individual off the streets.
