$50K bond stays in meth case

A Moffat County court judge declined to lower bond for a Craig woman charged with possession and distribution of methamphetamine.

Judge Mary Lynne James rejected a reduction of a $50,000 bond for Katherine Liljedahl, 35, during an advisement hearing Thursday.

Officials from Grand Routt and Moffat Narcotics Enforcement Team arrested the woman after obtaining a search warrant to raid her home in the 1300 block of Sequoia Avenue in Shadow Mountain Village. Craig Liljedahl, 38, also was arrested in connection to the June 1 incident and is out of jail on $10,000 bond in that case. Neither have any previous offenses, according to court records.

The couple is each charged with possession of a controlled Schedule 2 substance of greater than one gram and distribution of a controlled Schedule 2 substance.

Judge James has sealed search and arrest warrants in the case.

Craig police Officer Dusty Schulze of GRAMNET said the case is an ongoing investigation. and that there "were no real drug quantities found" but the arrests were based on drug paraphernalia and other items found.

Summonses also were served to Ada Campbell and Kris Grimes on suspicion of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a Craig Police Department release.
