KREX News Room
GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo. A nine-month narcotics investigation has led to the felony arrests of 14 people in Garfield County and Pitkin County. Seven suspects are still at large with active arrest warrants and are wanted by law enforcement officials. TRIDENT, the Two Rivers Drug Enforcement, has been working on the case.
Undercover police officers conducted controlled purchases of cocaine, ecstasy, psilocybin mushrooms, marijuana, prescription drugs, one assault rifle and one .38 pistol.
Glenwood Springs Police Chief, Terry Wilson, said, "I see it as a huge win for the community, definitely. These folks were generating such a large volume of illegal activity, if you total it all up. Other people get their neighborhoods back."
One of the suspects arrested, Evance Grandberry, was discovered to be the source of supply for several suspects in the investigation. However, Chief Wilson said all of the suspects are not necessarily associated with each other.
