March 26, 2014: Arrest in Drug Investigation in Chelyan

On March 26, 2014 Kanawha County Sheriff’s Deputies executed a search warrant at Gatewood Court, Chelyan.  The Kanawha County Sheriffs STOP Team had been investigating the distribution of heroin involving a subject from Detroit for several weeks.  Through this investigation the suspect was identified as being Terrell Montaie of Detroit, MI.


Deputies executed the search warrant at a trailer that Mr. Montaie was known to stay at.  They were able to locate Mr. Montaie along with a quantity of heroin, pills, and two handguns.  Mr. Montaie was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin.  Charges related to his being a felon in possession of a firearm are possible.  The Deputies may also request the federal government prosecute Mr. Montaie.


The charges against Mr. Montaie are merely accusations.  He is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.  Attached is a mug shot taken during his arrest today.
