Eleven drug dealers who were suspected of Distribution of Methamphetamine and Marijuana in Morgan County were targeted to be arrested Wednesday morning in coordinated drug raids.

The suspects were arrested on Morgan County District Court warrants from cases put together by the Fort Morgan Police Department, Morgan County Sheriff’s Department, Brush Police Department, and the Eastern Colorado Drug Task Force from investigations during the last six months. They were taken to the Morgan County Detention Center to await arraignment. More arrests are pending.

About 15 law enforcement officers from Morgan County and the Eastern Colorado Drug Task Force participated in the early morning roundup.

Arrested were:
Luis Morales-Alvarez, 52, of 601 S. Sherman Street #27, Fort Morgan, for Distribution and Possession of Schedule II Drug (Methamphetamine).

Daniel Wells, 31, 710 Cameron Street, Brush, for Distribution and Possession of Schedule II Drug (Methamphetamine).

Rey Gonzales, 21, of 14530 Hwy 34 #25, Fort Morgan, for Distribution and Possession of Schedule II Drug (Methamphetamine).

Randy Meza, 49, of 2911 Mill Street, Brush, for 2 (two) counts of Distribution and Possession of Marijuana.

Dorothy Aileen Munoz, 40, of 720 Edison Street, Brush, for 2 (two) counts of Distribution and Possession of Marijuana and Schedule II Drug (Methamphetamine).

Miguel Angel Munoz, 40, of 720 Edison Street, Brush, for Distribution and Possession of Marijuana.

Rex Allen Rucker, 44, of 19606 Virginia Avenue, of Fort Morgan, for 4 (four) counts of Distribution and Possession of Schedule II Drug (Methamphetamine).

We executed two search warrants which netted small quantities of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and cash.

Illegal drug distribution is an ongoing rural problem that has resulted in citizens having their quality of life affected. These kind of multiple law enforcement arrests are a continual process in the effort to clean up Morgan County. We want to go after the people who are responsible and we were successful today in rounding up a number of them. The message we want to send out is to identify these individuals so that they are known in Morgan County by each citizen.
