Police make drug bust in Kremmling apartment

A raid by police officers in Kremmling last week led to the arrest of two suspects and the seizure of drugs they are suspected of planning to sell.

On Friday, June 6, two Kremmling Police officers, assisted by a Granby Police officer, conducted the raid on an apartment. A man and woman were arrested.

“As the result of an ongoing investigation, our officers initiated the arrest warrants of the male and female suspects living at the apartment,” said Chief Scott Spade of the Kremmling Police Department. “The officers also had a warrant to search the apartment and the two vehicles owned by the suspects. As a result, evidence was seized.”

The man and woman, whose identities Chief Spade declined to divulge, were each charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms. Both have since posted bond and were released from the Grand County Jail in Hot Sulphur Springs.

According to Spade, five ounces of marijuana and 7.5 grams of psilocybin mushrooms were seized during the raid. Along with those drugs, drug paraphernalia including pipes, a weighing scale and three grow lights were confiscated. A dead marijuana plant was also found still in its planter.

Spade said the charges of intent to distribute leveled against the suspects were based on the fact that some of the drugs seized in the raid were “packaged for distribution.”

The two suspects offered no resistance while the arrest warrants were executed June 6. Spade said no weapons were found in the apartment.
