Taos, New Mexico, Elias Montoya, a former New Mexico State Police Officer was wrongfully terminated by the New Mexico State Police on December 6, 2013. Montoya, a husband and father of three, intends to appeal his termination. Montoya is a veteran New Mexico State Police Officer with many years of service to the Taos community. Everyday police officers put themselves in danger to protect the public. One of the most dangerous situations is a traffic stop on a rural road with limited radio access. It is difficult to second guess the actions of Officer Montoya without completely reviewing all of the evidence. At this time, Montoya’s attorneys are reviewing the allegations against him and are investigating the matter. Montoya would like to thank the community of Taos for supporting him and his family through this difficult time. All future questions should be directed to Officer Montoya’s counsel, Antonia Roybal-Mack at the contact number above.
