No Bail for Carjacker

Bail was denied Friday for a man facing murder charges for an attempted carjacking that turned fatal in the Belmont Central neighborhood earlier this year.

Jeffrey Montes De Oca, 31, was arrested Wednesday by the Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force in Orland Park, according to police.

Montes De Oca was leaving Tacos El Tio, 5737 W. Belmont Ave., March 25 with a 26-year-old man, when he saw a Chevy Equinox drive by, prosecutors said.

Montes De Oca allegedly ran back to his vehicle and chased after the Chevy while his co-defendant followed on foot.

The Chevy attempted to make a U-turn at the end of an alleyway but Montes blocked the vehicle in.

Montes De Oca exited his vehicle along with his co-defendant, who was armed with a handgun, prosecutors said.

The co-defendant then fired inside the front driver and front passenger seat
