Drug Task Force Arrest
Following complaints by neighbors about open air drug sales, The I-135/I-70 Drug Task Force has arrested three people on drug charges.
Lt. Jim Norton, Drug Task Force Commander said a search warrant was executed at 823 Gypsum Monday. 52-year-old Garry Jelkin and 62-year-old Marilyn Jelken were arrested following the search.

Wolfe had been turning morphine into heroin.
Also seized was marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
