Two suspected drug dealers are behind bars. 40 year old Felipe Vasquez-Torrecillas and 47 year old Dennis Candelaria both face drug possession and distribution charges.
The Western Colorado Drug Task Force, with help from the Grand Junction Police Street Crimes Unit and the Mesa County Sheriff's Office arrested the two men. On two separate occasions in early December, members of the Task Force were able to purchase methamphetamine from both of the suspects.
When Police served warrants at the suspect's homes they found 8 children living there. Because of that, Vasquez is also facing child abuse charges.
