CAÑON CITY – The Cañon City Police Department announced the results of a months-long investigation into separate drug distribution operations Thursday.

Cañon City police said they seized a total of 60.5 grams of methamphetamine, 11.3 grams of cocaine, 30.2 grams of heroin, 67.8 grams of prescription drugs and made six arrests as a result of four separate investigations.

Police said they started the first investigation last November when officers were tipped off about a location in the 600 block of Family Center Drive. Officers seized 11.2 grams of cocaine at that location. Months later on April 10, prosecutors charged 27-year-old Guy Walk for distribution of a schedule I/II controlled substance and unlawful possession of a schedule I/II controlled substance.

On Dec. 18, undercover officers recovered meth from a residence in the 200 block of Justice Center Road.

On Jan. 12, they searched a residence in the 600 block of Raintree Boulevard, where they recovered another 34.2 grams of meth and 67.8 grams of prescription drugs. Then on April 23, police said 23-year-old Cassandra Smith and 36-year-old Michael Hoskinds were charged with distribution and possession of a schedule I/II controlled substance.

The fourth and final seizure happened on March 26, when officers searched a home in the 200 block of Justice Center Road where they arrested 28-year-old Alex Web for illegal drug possession and distribution after they seized 18.2 grams of meth there. Police said this case has one more arrest pending.
