Suspect in bullet-proof vest
Bryan Morrow, 21, 3040 Teller Ave., was arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of distribution, manufacturing, dispensing or sale of a controlled substance after a traffic stop at the Interstate 70 Business Loop and 32 Road.
An arrest affidavit said officers observed a hunting-style knife in a sheath on his belt and that he was wearing a bullet-proof vest. Morrow said he was in danger because people were “after him,” but he didn’t say who or why. Officers found multiple syringes and zip lock baggies with suspected methamphetamine in the car, the affidavit said.
Morrow admitted he was driving to purchase more meth, the affidavit said.
Boy with warrant had knife
The Montrose Police Department said charges were sent to the District Attorney’s Office for consideration after a 17-year-old Olathe boy was found to possess a 4-inch knife and allegedly lied to officers about his identity when contacted Tuesday by officers in the 200 block of Townsend Avenue, according to Police Chief Tom Chinn.
The boy was named in a Delta County arrest warrant for failure to appear on charges including underage possession or consumption of alcohol.
