Three adults are behind bars and two juveniles cited after local law enforcement made a series of methamphetamine related arrests this week. Included in the arrests: a 14-year old and 17-year old from Olathe, 27-year old Olathe resident Jose Ramirez, 28-year old Olathe resident Pedro Saldana, and 20-year old Delta resident Aurelio Arias. All of the adult defendants were booked into Montrose County jail and face charges ranging from possession to distribution of methamphetamine. Montrose Police Chief Tom Chinn says the suspects were arrested after police initiated a traffic stop on Road-6450.
Bail for Saldana, Ramirez, and Arias was set at $60-thousand. All three defendants were scheduled for their first court appearance at 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.
