The men, identified Wednesday as co-defendants in the same case, are accused in the importation of cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin into Colorado, in addition to the seizure of multiple firearms, Assistant District Attorney Rich Tuttle told a judge Wednesday.

Affidavits have been sealed.

County Court Judge Craig Henderson said Wednesday the case involves, “a serious amount of drugs and firearms.”

Steven Madrigal, 24, 2854 1/2 Hill Ave., was ordered by the judge held at the Mesa County Jail on $100,000, cash-only bond for a single count of distribution of a controlled substance.

Henderson on Tuesday ordered identical $100,000 cash-only bonds for another four arrested since Monday.

David Perez-Garcia, 33, 2985 Yew Leaf Willow Ave.; Anthony Sanchez, 30, 2524 Hill Ave. Apt. 9; Anthony Perez, 29, of San Bernardino, Calif.; and Alejandro Garcia, 31, of Lake Elsinore, Calif., were advised Tuesday by Henderson and were still being held Wednesday at the Mesa County Jail.
