Multiple Texas law enforcement agencies helped locate Reed, as did the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office, which used “a number” of warrants and documents to help find the fugitive.
Reed was arrested without incident and was taken to the San Luis Obispo County Jail, where he is awaiting extradition to Texas, officials said.
