Trinidad, CO - Trinidad Police Department obtained arrest warrants for 16 people on drug related charges. This morning, officers arrested 11 individuals, one individual was taken into custody by Pueblo Parole Officers and five individuals remain at large. These arrests are the result of undercover narcotics operations that have took place from mid-September 2012 to early December 2012 in the City of Trinidad.
During this time, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines and various types of narcotic pills were purchased from individuals at various locations in the city.
"This is the first time we have done drug operations back to back. I think that starting this operation so quickly after ending the last one kept people guessing," said Chief Charles Glorioso, "The Police Department will continue to work at removing drugs from our community. It is an on-going battle and it will remain a priority for this year."
