Three accused in Collbran meth bust

Three people face drug-related charges after a search warrant was executed at a Collbran trailer park.

Scott Peterson, 45, of Lamar, Sandra Pankratz, 46, of Seminole, Okla., and Lisa Eisenbarth, 48, of Collbran, could be charged with distribution of methamphetamine after deputies allegedly found small quantities of meth packaged ready for sale, along with five suspected Vicodin pills, according to an arrest affidavit.

Mesa County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Heather Benjamin said deputies targeted the home after receiving tips that ounce-quantities of meth were being sold out of a trailer owned by Eisenbarth at 57704 Colorado Highway 330, unit 19.

Eisenbarth recently rented a nearby trailer to Peterson and Pankratz, the affidavit said.

Peterson and Pankratz were home Saturday when deputies came knocking in the predawn hours. When questioned by deputies about drug use, Pankratz allegedly said she recently “ate” meth “one or two weeks ago.”

“I asked her how it tasted, and she never really explained how it tasted or how she eats it,” the deputy wrote in the affidavit.

Deputies allegedly recovered several baggies, weighing less than a gram total, inside a cabinet in the master bedroom. The affidavit said the Vicodin pills were found on a kitchen table.

Peterson and Pankratz were arrested Saturday. Eisenbarth was arrested by deputies Wednesday.
