39 ounces of pot found
Bruce Adams Jr., 67, of Hartsel, was arrested Friday on suspicion of possession with intent to distribute marijuana after troopers stopped to assist Adams, whose vehicle was broken down at mile marker 48 on Interstate 70, according to the Colorado State Patrol.
Troopers found 38.8 ounces of marijuana in Adams’ Mazda, according to an arrest affidavit. Adams presented the trooper a valid medical marijuana card from California and said he was allowed to have up to 14 pounds of medical marijuana, but was informed the card wasn’t valid in Colorado, according to the affidavit. A digital scale, baggies, numerous smoking pipes and a bong were also found in the vehicle, according to the affidavit.
Dustin Lee Scott, 34, was arrested Saturday at 435 32 Road, Space 618, on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and a dangerous weapon; unlawful use of a concealed weapon; possession of a weapon by a previous offender; and violation of a protection order, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office.
A Mesa County sheriff’s deputy pulled Scott over on his motorcycle and found he had been named in two arrest warrants. The deputy placed Scott under arrest and searched him. During the search, the deputy found a folding knife with an approximately 6-inch blade in Scott’s back right pocket, and a container of suspected methamphetamine and a piece of glass tubing with suspected meth residue on it in Scott’s vest pocket, according to an arrest affidavit.
Scott informed the deputy he had “homemade brass knuckles” and “homemade” throwing knives in his saddle bags as well, according to the affidavit. He is restrained from having weapons because of a previous felony conviction and is not allowed to have controlled substances or weapons because of an active protection order.
Truck fire investigated
Roberto Bedoy-Cantero, 26, was arrested Saturday at 2914 Ronda Lee Road on suspicion of fourth-degree arson, criminal mischief, third-degree assault and physical harassment, among other charges, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy who arrived at the address shortly before midnight discovered a fire under and on the passenger side of a pickup truck parked in the driveway “around 8 to 10 feet from the front door ... of the residence,” according to an arrest affidavit. The deputy grabbed a fire extinguisher from his patrol car and prepared to extinguish the fire.
As he did so, however, Bedoy-Cantero exited the residence and faced the deputy with fists clenched. The deputy sprayed Bedoy-Cantero with the fire extinguisher, then extinguished the fire, according to the affidavit.
Bedoy-Cantero is suspected of starting the truck fire, according to the affidavit, and was accused of trying to head-butt a deputy while in custody. He was booked into Mesa County Jail.
