The chase went through the parking lot of the Outlet Shoppes of El Paso and then back onto the road. 

Reed was eventually stopped and arrested in the 6300 block of Doniphan.

He was booked into El Paso County Jail on charges of theft, evading arrest and failure to give identification. He is being held on bonds totaling $40,300.
