Man charged with aggravated robbery

A quick cash scheme at Kwik Kash didn’t work out for a man after he was charged by police with aggravated robbery.

The Odessa Police Department responded to the incident around 2:58 p.m. Monday at Kwik Kash, 1821 E. Eighth St., in reference to a subject with a gun, an OPD press release said.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with the 27-year-old complainant and the suspect, 66-year-old Guy Reed, who had reportedly brought the complainant to the store because he had owed Reed $500, the release detailed.

Reed reportedly had pulled out a hand gun and threatened to shoot him if he ran, the release stated, and the complainant called for help when he went inside the business.

Police charged Reed with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony.

Jail records show Reed was taken to the Ector County Detention Center Tuesday and has not had a bond set yet.
