ACET arrests 2 distribution suspects


Two local residents were arrested early Tuesday morning at a Craig hotel, after authorities found items "consistent with the distribution of methamphetamine."

Jerry David Flannery, 45, was arrested on suspicion of distribution of a schedule 2 controlled substance, a Class 3 felony, and tampering with evidence, a Class 6 felony.

Carmen Lita Clark, 37, was arrested on suspicion of distribution of schedule 2 controlled substance.

Flannery and Clark were booked into the Moffat County Jail.

The arrests stemmed from a joint investigation between the All Crimes Enforcement Team, Craig Police Department and the Moffat County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities served a search warrant about 2:30 a.m. at a room in the hotel, where they found Flannery, and seized about 10 grams of a substance thought to be methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and alleged distribution items, ACET reported in a news release.

Authorities alleged that Flannery disposed of methamphetamine by flushing it down the toilet before it could be seized.

Clark was found soon after the search warrant was served, in the parking lot of a nearby retail store, the task force reported.

ACET commander Garrett Wiggins said an anonymous source tipped a Craig police officer about suspicious drug activity, and the information was relayed to the task force.

"This is another example of a collaborative effort between concerned citizens and local law enforcement agencies working together," he said, in the release.

Formal charges had not been filed against Flannery or Clark in Moffat County Court as of Wednesday afternoon.
