LAYTON, Utah, Oct. 22, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — The Layton Police Department is looking for a suspect in an aggravated robbery that took place Sunday at 215 N. Fairfield Road.

According to an LPD news release, the suspect is Samuel Reed, 28.

Reed currently is wanted for aggravated robbery and possession of a weapon by a restricted person. He is also a fugitive from several jurisdictions as well as the U.S. Marshal’s Service.

He is described as 6 feet tall, 220 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen in the Ogden area and was wearing a red, hooded sweatshirt.

The release states that Reed is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees him or knows his whereabouts should not approach him, but should immediately call Layton Police at 801-497-8300 and reference case 17-17748.

The victim, a 25-year-old woman, told police that Reed, her ex-boyfriend, displayed a handgun during an argument and took the keys to her vehicle.

Reed and Keisha Majoris, 26, took the vehicle and left the area, with Majoris driving because Reed cannot drive a manual transmission vehicle, according to the release.

When Reed and Majoris later returned after agreeing to give back certain items from the vehicle, there was another argument and the victim chased Majoris.

At that point, police say, Reed again displayed a handgun, and he and Majoris again drove off in the stolen vehicle.

Ogden Police located Majoris and the stolen vehicle, as well as the victim’s identification and financial cards.

Majoris was interviewed and booked into Davis County Jail for aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony; eight counts of unlawful acquisition of a financial transaction card, third-degree felonies; and possession of multiple identifying documents of another, a third-degree felony.
