Timeline for ACET methamphetamine bust

Fall 2012: Task force begins making controlled buys of illegal substances from suspects.

June 18: ACET executes arrest warrants and search warrants at 796 Barclay St. and 974 Aiken St. Conny Mullis and Maria Saenz arrested.

June 20: Robert Boyer arrested as a result of search warrant at 974 Aiken St., arrest warrant for Shelly Boyer also out

June 24: Teddy Crook arrested as a result of ongoing investigation.

June 26: Arrest warrants out for five others believed to be involved in distribution of controlled substances.

Two more arrests have been made in relation to the warrants executed last week on methamphetamine distributors.

Robert Bruce Boyer, 31, and Teddy Eugene Crook, 64, both of Craig, were arrested June 20 and June 24, respectively. Their arrests follow a first round made when warrants were executed last Tuesday. Conny Mullis and Maria Saenz were arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Crook was arrested at 796 Barclay St., the same address as Saenz and Mullis. Boyer’s home address is 974 Aiken St., the other residence where a search warrant was executed last week.

A “substantial” amount of drugs and drug-related distribution equipment was found at the Aiken Street residence, leading to the issuance of arrest warrants for Robert and Shelly Boyer. The police department is still searching for Shelly Boyer, said Craig Police Chief Walt Vanatta. Rober Boyer is in custody.

“It was in the neighborhood of $10,000 in drugs that were seized out of that house,” Vanatta said.

The arrests are the next steps in what the All Crimes Enforcement Team drug task force expects to be an ongoing series of arrests that it believes will significantly impact the methamphetamine business in Craig.

Warrants have also been issued for the arrest of five others as a result of the search warrants from last week.

Spencer Vavak, Justin Gates, Jeff Myers, Michael Colvin and Adela Clark Sanchez all have arrest warrants for unlawful distribution of controlled substances.
