A suspect in a reported Wednesday-morning carjacking in Denver was arrested and held without bond overnight after the stolen vehicle wrecked during a chase by Sanford police, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
After identifying a tan Honda Accord as the stolen vehicle, a Sanford officer attempted to pull the vehicle over, according to a sheriff’s office press release. The suspects fled “at a high rate of speed” before crashing on N.C. 87.
One occupant of the vehicle reportedly ran from the scene while two others remained in the vehicle.
Keymonty Leray Davis, 20, of Fayetteville, is charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest and felony possession of a stolen vehicle. He was given a $51,000 secured bond on those charges. He was also served with a felony warrant for violating probation and held without bond at the Lee County Detention Center.
Tahnice M. Bell, 17, of Sanford, was charged with felony possession of a motor vehicle; resisting, delaying and obstructing a public officer; and driving with a revoked license.
The victim, Patrick Reilly, told deputies he was getting ready to leave for work Wednesday when two black males walked up his driveway, in the 3800 block of Sage Court, and the third pulled an SUV into the driveway, blocking his car. The suspects, who had their faces covered, banged on Reilly’s car window before one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and ordered him out of the vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office.
Reilly said the suspects demanded his money, wallet and car keys. One of the suspects reportedly drove away in Reilly’s vehicle.
Deputies searched the neighborhood and discovered that other vehicles appeared to have been broken into.
