Task force assists feds
Officials with the Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team assisted with a federal investigation in the Carbondale area on Wednesday.
Glenwood Springs Police Chief Terry Wilson said TRIDENT assisted the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in investigating a possible “customs violation” at a home. A person was home at the time of the investigation, but no arrests were made, he added.
“Some items were taken for further analysis to determine if there were any illegal substances involved. At this time it is not believed or known that there are, so the investigation continues to make that determination,” Wilson said.
