Son jailed in drug investigation accused of enlisting mother in forgery, drug sales

A man already jailed on suspicion of selling heroin is accused of enlisting his mother to present fake documents to a judge, in addition to directing her on selling his drugs.

Ryan Boylan, 28, of Grand Junction, was ordered jailed last week on $50,000 bond on suspicion of attempt to influence a public servant, conspiracy to distribute heroin and criminal solicitation to commit forgery. The allegations came to light as a result of recorded phone calls at the Mesa County Jail, according to an arrest affidavit.

Boylan is heard in jail calls telling his mother, Robyn Boylan, 54, to forge paycheck stubs from a local business, which could be presented to a Mesa County judge during arguments for a lower bond, according to the affidavit. Boylan was being held at the time on $50,000 bond on suspicion of distribution of a controlled substance.

In separate conversations, Boylan is heard from jail directing his mother on how to sell his alleged supply of heroin.

“I hope you are not stupid ...” he said at one point, the affidavit said.

Robyn Boylan was arrested Aug. 21 by Western Colorado Drug Task Force officers. She admitted twice selling quantities of heroin from her son’s supply after he was arrested in July.

“(Robyn Boylan) said that Ryan told her that he had stuff (heroin) in his room that he needed her to sell so she could get him out of jail,” the affidavit said.

Ryan Boylan is being held at the Mesa County Jail on bonds totaling $100,000.
