Two suspected of meth


Mlisa Darlene Anderson, 47, 109 Smokey Hill, in Parachute, and Daniel Raymond Emert, 43, 436 Chipeta Ave., were arrested Thursday on suspicion of possession of more than 2 grams of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

In addition, Emert was arrested on suspicion of criminal impersonation and driving with a revoked license.

Emert allegedly was driving a vehicle Thursday night in the area of 12th Street and Belford Avenue, when an officer pulled the vehicle over for traffic violations.

A police dog alerted officers to the suspected presence of narcotics and Emert confirmed that “there are drugs in my car,” according to his arrest affidavit. Emert offered to get them for the officers, his affidavit said, but officers declined his offer.

A plastic tube of suspected meth was found in the zipper pocket of a black fanny pack, the affidavits for both Anderson and Emert said.
