Seneca Man arrested on Outstanding Warrants

Outstanding warrants finally caught up to a Seneca man. On Tuesday, the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office arrested 40-year-old Chad Tyron Lee on outstanding warrants that date back to the year 2003. Oconee County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Jimmy Watt gives details. “An Oconee County Sheriff’s Office deputy met with deputies from Anderson County in Townville to pick Lee up and transport him to the Oconee County Detention Center. According to deputies, Lee went to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office to change his address as he is required to do as Lee is on the Sex Offender Registry. A National Crime Information Center check revealed that Lee had the outstanding warrants from Oconee County. According to warrants, Lee is charged with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance (crack cocaine), distribution of crack cocaine within the proximity of a school (Code Elementary School), and distribution of crack cocaine. The warrants allege that these incidents took place on April 4, 2003 on Sixth Street in Seneca and were made to an undercover operative working at the direction of the Sheriff’s Office.” Lee was released from the Oconee County Detention Center on a $20,000 personal recognizance bond.
