Drug theft charges dropped

• Prosecutors on Tuesday declined to file charges against a Grand Junction woman suspected of stealing prescription drugs from a pharmacy.
Sharon Sanderson, 65, was arrested May 27 at the Clifton City Market on suspicion of theft and possession of a controlled substance. Prosecutors, though, dropped the case for lack of evidence.
“I was falsely accused,” Sanderson told The Daily Sentinel.

Man on probation arrested

• Ron H. Gallegos, 27, was arrested Monday evening after he failed to return to Mesa County Work Release, 559 Pitkin Ave.
Gallegos was living at work release as a condition of probation for auto theft. He was arrested after he called authorities, saying he was intoxicated and staying at a room at Monument Inn, District Attorney Pete Hautzinger said during a first court appearance on Tuesday.
Hautzinger said Gallegos called authorities around 10:15 p.m. and said he had cashed a check and rented a room at the hotel. Rodriguez acknowledged he’d “made a mistake.”
“He said he’d bought a bus ticket and was leaving on (Tuesday) if they didn’t come to get him,” Hautzinger told County Court Judge Craig Henderson.
Gallegos was ordered held on $15,000 bond.
