Foot Chase Ends with Arrest

KSAL StaffDecember 12, 2017

A shoplifter is caught on the run after trying to convince a woman he’d just met to hide him from police.

Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that officers took 37-year-old Mason Reeves into custody on Monday after he allegedly stole clothing items from Orscheln’s Farm and Home Store,360 N. Ohio – and then tried to steal a car from a woman’s home in the 1200 block of North 4th Street.

Police say 28-year-old Kari Stanley confronted Reeves just before noon when she saw him trying to start her 1997 Honda Accord with a screwdriver.

He then told her he was running from police and asked if she would help hide him.

Reeves’ crime spree began inside Orscheln’s when he reportedly left the store with a Carhart coat, Under Armor hoodie and a Polar brand jacket he did not pay for. Store staff watched him ride off in a maroon colored, Nissan car as a passenger.

They followed the car for a short time giving police the description until Reeves was spotted running on Santa Fe Avenue.

He is now facing multiple charges connected to the thefts.

Police have not identified who was driving the car who helped Reeves leave the store.
