Cameron fugitive caught in Bell County Friday

A 53-year-old Cameron man, on the run from area authorities for more than two weeks, was arrested Friday in Heidenheimer in Bell County.

Kenneth Alvin Montgomery has been sought by several agencies since a July 16 chase in which Cameron officers said the driver continuously disposed of narcotics, then ditched the vehicle and fled on foot.

Montgomery, who is being held without bond, was charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance (4 to 200 grams), tampering/fabricating physical evidence, evading arrest/detention with vehicle, possession of marijuana (less than 2 ounces) in a drug-free zone, and two counts of parole violation.
