Wheelman in robbery gets prison time

A New Mexico man was sentence Wednesday in the 8th Judicial District Court to serve 15 years in prison for robbing a disabled man and 10 years for engaging in organized criminal activity. The terms are to be served concurrently.

The punishment was part of a July 2 plea agreement between Narelle Adreyan Reed, 27, of Hobbs, N.M., defense attorney Phil Smith and District Attorney Martin Braddy.

Reed faced a minimum of two years in prison for the third-degree felony criminal activity charge and a maximum of 99 years to life (considered to be 60 years) on the first-degree charge of felony robbery involving a deadly weapon.

The defendant opted to enter a guilty plea in exchange for the lesser sentences and agreeing to testify about both incidents at the trials of the three other men involved in the cases.

The deadly weapon finding in the charge means Reed will have to serve at least half of the 15-year sentence before he will be eligible for parole, Braddy said.

Under questioning on July 2, Reed admitted he drove a vehicle that dropped off codefendants on a road, stopped at a church and waited to go back and get them after they allegedly forced their way into a disabled man’s residence and robbed him of his Social Security money. In a separate incident he reportedly also dropped off at least one of the men at a pawn shop which was broken into and had guns stolen from inside of it, Braddy said last month.
