Ezequiel was arrested for an outstanding warrant originally issued by Montrose County Sheriff’s Office for controlled substance violations.

While the officer searched the vehicle, deputies found a bag containing methamphetamine weighing 18 grams. Ezequiel was booked into Mesa County Detention Facility without incident on the outstanding warrant and new charges.

On the same night, the Street and Crime Unit also conducted a traffic stop around 8:45 p.m. on 32 Road and Bunting Avenue. A bag that was thrown from the truck was identified as methamphetamine that weighed over 54 grams.

The passenger was identified as 37-year-old Aaron Irvine of Grand Junction and the driver was 60-year-old Harold Wardle of Grand Junction. Both men were arrested.
