A man wanted in a Pasco robbery has been arrested in Kennewick.

Juan Manuel Reyes, 25, was wanted for stealing a vehicle at gunpoint last week, according to a Kennewick Police news release. A resident saw him at 12:23 p.m. Saturday near North Moraine Street and West Clearwater Avenue in Kennewick, and called police dispatch, police said. An off-duty police officer also called with the same information around the same time and identified Reyes, a transient, police said.

Several police units quickly responded and saw Reyes at a bus stop, police said. They were able to quickly arrest him without incident.

Reyes had a realistic looking BB pistol on him at the time of his arrest, but it wasn’t known if the gun was used in the robbery, police said. He was turned over to Pasco Police, who booked him into Franklin County jail on suspicion of first degree robbery.
