Meth shipment intercepted
After receiving a tip from the Colorado Springs office of the Drug Enforcement Agency, Mesa County sheriff’s deputies drove into Utah on Friday and clandestinely followed two vehicles suspected of transporting a large amount of methamphetamine into the state.
The deputies initially caught up with the two vehicles, a blue Chevrolet truck with California license plates and a while Chevrolet Malibu with Colorado plates, at a gas station off of Interstate 70 near Green River, Utah, according to arrest affidavits of the three.
Following the two vehicles, the deputies pulled them over after they crossed into Colorado, and with the aid of a drug-sniffing dog, allegedly found about 20 pounds of meth.
The three, 23-year-old Anthony Rosas, 21-year-old Valerie Michelle Lemus and 19-year-old Sergio Josue Solano, were jailed on suspicion of distribution of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.
Divine carnal calling?
A man said God wanted him to have sex with another man last Friday behind the Melrose Motel, 337 Colorado Ave.
The man, Mark Allen Hoover, 43, was accused of trying to perform a sexual act on another man, according to a Grand Junction Police Department arrest affidavit of Hoover.
The other man told police he pushed Hoover away and told him to stop.
Hoover, who later was taken to the Mesa County Jail, told police that he did it because God wanted him to have sex with the other man.
Hoover was jailed on suspicion of unlawful sexual conduct without consent, second-degree assault of a police officer, obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest.
