Task force arrests five

Joshua Roberts

— The All Crimes Enforcement Team, formerly known as GRAMNET, conducted three search warrants Thursday in Craig that resulted in five drug-related arrests.

Two search warrants were executed about 11 p.m. at the Frontier Apartment Complex and the other on the 500 block of First Avenue West.

Four suspects – Ana Quintana, 22, Lionel Pavia, 29, Argel Bustillos, 27, and Salvador Carranza Ruiz, 41 – were arrested at the Frontier complex. They were booked into Moffat County Jail on suspicion of cultivation/production of marijuana, and distribution/manufacturing/dispensing/selling/possessing with intent to sell marijuana.

They are currently being held on Immigration Customs Enforcement, or ICE, holds, the All Crimes Enforcement Team reported.

Tim Michael Martin, 24, was arrested at the 500 block of First Avenue West address.

He was booked into the jail on charges of cultivation/production of marijuana and distribution/manufacturing/dispensing/selling/possessing with intent to sell marijuana. He is being held in the jail on $10,000 bond.

“The search warrants are the result of several lengthy illegal drug distribution investigations by ACET investigators,” task force commander Garrett Wiggins wrote in a press release announcing the arrests.

“These investigations removed yet to be quantified amounts of cocaine and marijuana from the streets of our community.”

The search warrants were completed in a joint effort with the Craig Police Department, Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, Steamboat Springs Police Department, ICE and the 14th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
