Pair who try to flee arrested
A 32-year-old Grand Junction man and a 42-year-old Clifton woman were arrested Saturday near Riverwood Drive and D Road on suspicion of numerous charges, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.
Santos James Crespin, 2959 Parkway Drive, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a weapon by a previous offender, being a special offender, vehicular eluding, assault of an officer, possession of a controlled substance and driving under revocation. Crespin crashed his vehicle as he tried to elude deputies and injured a deputy, his arrest affidavit alleged.
A loaded handgun was found in Crespin’s vehicle, along with 7.5 grams of suspected methamphetamine in packages, the affidavit said.
Jennifer Lee Scears, 424 32 Road, was arrested during the incident on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance after she told authorities she “was selling the methamphetamine out of her home” and sold the drugs to Crespin, according to her arrest affidavit from the Sheriff’s Department.
