City leaders credit the LAPD's partnership with community groups with making the arrest possible.
On Friday, July 9, members from the Crenshaw and Coliseum Starbucks community contacted LAPD Detective Venus Mason with information regarding the whereabouts of a wanted fugitive.
Detective Mason was contacted because the community members had a prior working relationship with her and wanted to keep their identities anonymous.
Reed was identified by his photo on the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation's website.
He was listed as number 10 on the most-wanted parolee list.
Reed was also wanted for an alleged murder in Georgia.
Reed was living in the Crenshaw district, where he was using an alias.
LAPD Southwest Division patrol officers spotted him on the 3700 block of Crenshaw Blvd. and took him into custody without incident on Saturday July 10.
Reed was booked into the LAPD's 77th jail facility and was held without bail.
