Fugitive Arrest

On November 26, 2021 at 12:57 pm, a Greeley Police Officer observed a black Ford truck failing to stop for a red light. The officer followed the vehicle into the North Colorado Medical Center ER parking lot. The driver of the vehicle was transporting a male, who was in the backseat of the truck and had overdosed on unknown narcotics, to the emergency room.

After medical staff removed the male from the backseat of the vehicle, the driver accelerated quickly and hit a police car. The truck became stuck and the driver was able to break free, hitting another vehicle in the process. The driver ultimately used the truck to ram through the ambulance gate, causing an estimated $20,000 in damage, and fled the area. The truck was later located and was found to be a reported stolen vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle was later identified as 27-year-old, Orion Reid, by Greeley Police Detectives. A warrant was issued for Reid’s arrest for Felony Criminal Mischief, Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft and Reckless Endangerment.

On January 5, 2022, the Greeley Police SET Team, assisted by Parole Officers, received information that Reid was in the area of the 1700 block of 12th Avenue. Reid was located in a home and the house was surrounded. Reid ultimately exited the home and surrendered to officers without incident. Reid was taken to the Weld County Jail on the warrant from this incident along with multiple other warrants for his arrest.

No additional information will be released today.
