Suspected parole violator accused of drug charges

A 29-year-old man who was reported as a fugitive from parole was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of several high-level drug charges,

Darrick Reid was located at an apartment near the intersection of Seventh Avenue and Patterson Road, and taken into custody on a warrant regarding his parole violation, according to an affidavit for Reid’s arrest. Parole officers then conducted a search of his apartment, during which they allegedly found more than 50 grams of cocaine, dozens of prescription pills, several oxycodone pills, an ecstasy pill and two stacks of money containing $1,000 each, the affidavit said. The affidavit also said Reid had nearly $3,000 in his wallet.

The officers found evidence in Reid’s kitchen that suggested Reid intended to deal the drugs present, according to the report.

A $5,000 cash-only bond was set in Reid’s case on Friday.


According to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office:

■ Vandalism was reported in the 1000 block of Carbonera Avenue on Tuesday.

■ Justin Michael Bell, 27, was arrested in the 2900 block of Parkway Drive for obstruction and outstanding warrants on July 27.
