A Harvard man was arrested after police pulled over his speeding vehicle and found him in possession of nearly 900 tabs of LSD and $14,000 in cash on Friday.
Alek A. Montemayor, 27, of the 1300 block of Northfield Court in Harvard, was charged with possession of cannabis with intent to deliver between 30-500 grams, possession of cannabis between 30-100 grams, possession of 600-1500 parts of LSD, and possession with intent to deliver 600-1500 parts of LSD.
The Harvard Police Department received a 911 call from an employee at the McDonald’s, 352 South Division Street in Harvard, on Friday regarding an intoxicated driver in a black BMW.
Police officers located the suspect vehicle as it turned to head north on Division Street, according to a motion filed by McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Judy Shammo.
The vehicle, driven by Montemayor, crossed over the fog line and the yellow center lane line before it accelerated while swerving all over the roadway, officers reported.
Officers conducted a traffic stop on the BMW, which was traveling approximately 80 mph, and the vehicle stopped near the 500 block of North Division Street.
Officers arrested Montemayor and conducted an inventory search of the man’s vehicle.
Over 30 grams of cannabis and cannabis products along with 897 individual perforated tabs of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), Shammo said.
There were also three cell phones, a drug ledger, a box of miscellaneous papers, and a multi-colored fabric bag containing $13,950 in cash in the vehicle.
Montemayor remains held in the McHenry County Jail after a judge set his bond at $150,000. He would need $15,000 cash to be released from jail.
A bond hearing is scheduled for Wednesday and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 28.
