Meth suspects arrested

Deborah Lee Fache, 50, and Christopher Joseph Adams, 52, both of 397 Stewart Ave. in De Beque, were arrested Thursday on suspicion of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia possession, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies executed a search warrant at the apartment of Fache and Adams, looking for a handgun, possibly used in a separate case, according to an arrest affidavit. The suspect in that case reported occasionally staying at the apartment of Fache and Adams, the affidavit said. During the search, the affidavit said, deputies found in a safe a bag containing about half an ounce of suspected methamphetamine.
