On Thursday, February 19, 2015, in the early morning hours, several Prowers County District Court felony warrants were served within Prowers County, and one in the City of Pueblo, Colorado. All the warrants were for Distribution of a Schedule II Controlled Substance, between 14-225 grams. Those arrested were:

Prowers Area:

Eddy Huerta – Bond $50,000; located in Ulysses, Kansas and arrested on this warrant and will be extradited back to Prowers County, William Gregor – Bond $40,000; Miguel Reyes- Bond $40,000, Javier Garcia AKA Raul Gutierrez- Bond $40,000, who also had approximately one (1) ounce of cocaine on his person, packaged for distribution, when arrested, Sergio Alvarez Sr. – Bond $50,000, Fernando Montez-Bond $40,000, Odilon Diaz- Bond $50,000, also had approx. 1 gram of Methamphetamine on his person when he was arrested.  Another Prowers resident, Guillermo Casillas, was arrested on the same charges, only his stemmed from the arrests of these individuals. Casillas was held on $50,000 Bond.

From Pueblo: Sisto Medina- Bond $75,000; located and held in Pueblo.

These warrants were a joint effort between the DEA, Prowers County Sheriff’s Office, and the 15th JD District Attorney. These arrests were also related to the arrest of Lamar resident, Victor Linares, earlier this month. Linares was charged with Federal charges from drug activity between Colorado and Kansas, as well as Prowers County District Court charges stemming from the same drug activity. Linares was released from Federal custody after posting bond, and then taken into custody in Denver on the Prowers County warrant.

Prowers County Sheriff, Sam Zordel, said these arrests stemmed from a year long investigation from the Drug Enforcement Agency in Colorado Springs along with coordination among local law enforcement agencies.  He added, “This was based mostly on drug distribution and was also coordinated with the Garden City, KS branch of the DEA.”  Zordel said he believed two of the subjects have already made bail and the majority of the subjects were in Prowers County Court this past Friday, February 20, for advisement hearings.
