GRAMNET arrests nine suspects

A hectic couple of months.

That's how Dusty Schulze, task force commander of the Greater Routt and Moffat Narcotic Enforcement Team, described a series of investigations resulting in 21 arrests since October.

"It just seems to be the cycle of things," Schulze said Friday, on the heels of an announcement that GRAMNET had made another sweeping arrest of multiple suspects.

Officers from GRAMNET, the Craig Police Department, Steamboat Springs Police Department, Colorado State Patrol Communications Center and the Moffat County Sheriff's Office executed a series of arrest warrants Friday. Nine suspects, all but one of whom are from Craig, were arrested.

The suspects have all been charged with narcotic-related offenses in Moffat County. The suspects are:

  • Jesse David Aragon, 20, of Craig. He is charged with distribution of marijuana, a class 4 felony.
  • Kassandra Joanne Dilldine, 20 of Craig. She is charged with distribution of methamphetamine, a class 2 felony.
  • Justin Matthew Wright, 26, of Craig. He is charged with distribution of marijuana, a class 4 felony.
  • Landon Walter Melquist, 25, of Craig. He is charged with distribution of methamphetamine, a class 3 felony.
  • Leo Robert Fournier, 46, of Craig. He is charged with distribution of morphine, a class 3 felony.
  • Randy James Carr, 23, of Craig. Carr is charged with distribution of marijuana, a class 4 felony. He is currently in custody of the Colorado Department of Corrections and with a court order will be extradited back to Moffat County to face new charges.
  • Paula Marie Enriquez, 28, of Baggs, Wyo. She is charged with distribution of methamphetamine, a class 3 felony. Enriquez is also in department of corrections' custody and with a court order will be extradited back to Moffat County to face new charges.
  • Daniel Christopher Carr, 21, of Craig. He is charged with distribution of cocaine, a class 3 felony.
  • Juan Gabriel Marquez, 24, of Craig. He is charged with distribution of marijuana, a class 4 felony.

Schulze said additional charges are expected to be filed against several of the suspects. He added that an investigation into the illegal narcotic activity is ongoing and more arrests could be made.
