MET Deputies Make Arrest

Thursday, July 4th at 8:35 P.M., San Bernardino County Sheriff Deputies assigned to the Multiple Enforcement Team (MET) at the Highland Police Department were dispatched to the 7400 block of Elm Street in Highland. The Team assisted CalFire personnel who were responding to a report of a palm tree on fire at the location. The MET Deputies assisted with crowd control at the apartment complex while the fire department personnel extinguished the fire. 

Originally, the Deputies were contacted by a citizen who reported the suspect, Jeff Reeder, had brandished a firearm at several citizens. When the MET Deputies went to speak to Reeder a physical altercation occurred with one of the Deputies. Reeder reached for a loaded handgun that was concealed inside his waistband. A second Deputy was able to grab the handgun and disarm Reeder. Reeder broke free from the Deputies and fled on foot but was arrested after a short foot chase through the apartment complex.

Reeder’s bail is set at $50,000 and he is scheduled for arraignment on July 9th in Superior Court in San Bernardino. All charges against Reeder will be sent to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office to be reviewed.
