Tubing tips off deputies
A Grand Junction man arrested on suspicion of drug possession offered to tell a deputy about other wanted subjects in exchange for having his own charges dropped, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.
Tyler Jay Cady, 34, 260 Loralee St., was pulled over by deputies Wednesday afternoon during a traffic stop in the area of 33 Road and Front Street in Clifton. According to an arrest affidavit, Cady told a deputy that rubber tubing found in his vehicle was to be used for a slingshot. Tubing is commonly used as a tourniquet to inject drugs, the Sheriff’s Department said.
After deputies field-tested substances found in the vehicle that tested positive for amphetamines, Cady was arrested on suspicion of drug possession, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, not having proof of insurance, and driving a vehicle with obstructed vision, the affidavit said.
According to the Grand Junction Police Department:

Property valued at more than $1,000 was taken from J.C. Penney Co., 2424 U.S. Highway 6&50, after someone forced entry into the building.
