Police are looking for a man with a long criminal record who is on the run after cutting off his electronic monitoring device.

Travores Montford, also known as Tavaris or Tavories, cut off his ankle bracelet Friday, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. He was last seen in the area of Mill Road, near Johnson C. Smith University.

The 30-year-old is wanted on outstanding warrants for interfering with an electronic monitoring device, damage to property and armed robbery.

Jail records show Montford was placed on electronic monitoring in May when he was released from jail on bond for pending armed robbery charges.

Montford is a felon with convictions on charges of auto theft, assault on a female, selling drugs and carrying a concealed weapon, according to the N.C. Department of Correction.

He is the 15th offender to cut off a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department electronic monitor so far this year, police said. Each of the previous 14 has been recaptured.

Police said Montford is 5-feet-8 and weighs 150 pounds.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
