Arrest Warrants Served on North Carolina Man in Relation to April 2023 Pursuit


Theodore Adrian Montejo

 (Walhalla, SC)------------------------------------A Connelly Springs, NC man remains in jail today, on a combined $125,000 surety bond, after being served arrest warrants, obtained by the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office, in relation to a pursuit that occurred in the southern part of Oconee County in April of this year.

 

24 year old Theodore Adrian Montejo, of W. Meadow Space Trail, was transported from the Anderson County Detention Center to the Oconee County Detention Center yesterday after being taken into custody by a Deputy from the Warrants Unit.  Montejo was booked into jail in Oconee County around 2:57pm. 

 

The Sheriff’s Office charged Montejo with one count each of Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Involving an Unattended Vehicle, as well as two counts of Malicious Injury to Property.

 

According to a news release that was issued on April 6th of this year, Deputies from the Uniform Patrol Bureau of the OCSO responded, for mutual aid purposes, to assist deputies from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office after the conclusion of a pursuit along I-85 southbound in the southern part of Oconee County.  The pursuit occurred the evening of Wednesday, April 5th. 

 

When deputies arrived, they observed a vehicle accident involving a marked Anderson County Sheriff’s Office vehicle, which occurred on I-85 near exit 2.  The vehicle, a 2020 Dodge Charger, was operated by a deputy from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.

 

A deputy from the Uniform Patrol Bureau also responded to where the pursuit terminated, which was Lake Hartwell State Park, which is on Highway 11 near I-85.  At that scene, the deputy observed a marked Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Ford Explorer, which was stolen and operated by Montejo, which caused damage to a gate at the park.  Also on scene was a marked Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Dodge Charger.

 

Montejo was taken into custody by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office in a wooded area near Lake Hartwell after running from the scene.  Both Montejo, and the Anderson County deputy involved in the accident on the Interstate, were transported to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.

 

Based upon evidence that was gathered during the investigation by the OCSO, Montejo was charged with using the stolen ACSO vehicle, which he was operating, to ram the vehicle occupied and operated by the ACSO deputy.  The action by Montejo caused an accident, which led to multiple lacerations to the right fingers, palm and arm of the ACSO deputy, according to an arrest warrant.

 

Montejo was also charged, by the OCSO, with leaving the scene of an accident.  After ramming the Law Enforcement vehicle on the Interstate, Montejo left the scene in the stolen law enforcement vehicle and eventually abandoned the vehicle as he ran from Lake Hartwell State Park.

 

Montejo also caused damage to the vehicle access control gate at Lake Hartwell State Park, where the pursuit concluded, according to an arrest warrant. 

 

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.  Montejo will be required to wear an electronic monitoring device, as a condition of bond, should he be released.
