Delta County man is suspected of dealing meth

The Delta County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a 63-year-old man suspected of dealing methamphetamine out of his Austin home.

Deputies who searched Kenny Wallace’s home at 10196 Colorado Highway 65 in Delta County on Thursday found about 5 pounds of suspected methamphetamine and about $21,000 in cash, the department wrote in a press release Monday morning.

Wallace is wanted on suspicion of drug possession with the intent to distribute. Bond is set at $100,000, the release said.

The search followed the roadside arrest of 43-year-old Mary Waddington, who was arrested on suspicion of drug possession Thursday, the report said.

 

Junction man accused of felony drunken driving

 

A 32-year-old Grand Junction man is facing a felony count of driving under the influence after being arrested Friday on what Mesa County prosecutors said could be his seventh drunk-driving offense.

James Daniel Westbrook was arrested Friday morning by a Mesa County sheriff’s deputy who found him in a mini van with bloodshot eyes, the smell of alcohol and an empty shooter of vodka on the driver’s seat, according to an arrest affidavit. Westbrook — who told the deputy he had three drunk-driving convictions in Colorado and three in Utah — also allegedly estimated he was “somewhere near the top” of a one to 10 scale of how drunk he was, the report said.

Westbrook appeared Monday in Mesa County Court where Judge Michael Grattan ordered him held in lieu of a $2,500 cash-only bond, despite assurances from Westbrook’s friends and family members who said they would make sure he appeared at future court dates.
