Drug offenses, resisting arrest alleged

Andrew Daniel Ybarra, 44, Grand Junction, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of possession of a Schedule 2 controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, tampering with evidence and resisting arrest, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

An officer attempted to contact Ybarra, wanted on a felony warrant, about 5:30 p.m., in the Sam’s Club parking lot when Ybarra ran to avoid officers, his arrest affidavit alleged.

Ybarra tried to pull a shopping cart in front of the officers and tried to throw a bag with a white substance under a parked car, the affidavit alleged.

The bag contained nearly 7 grams of suspected cocaine, his affidavit said.
