3rd Craig resident arrested on meth distribution charges related to December incident

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A Craig man faces a felony charge for possessing a significant amount of methamphetamine.

The Routt County District Attorney’s Office has charged 32-year-old Adrian L. Ramos on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance with intent to sell or distribute.

He was arrested Monday on a felony complaint filed by Routt County District Attorney Brett Barkey.

Ramos is the third person implicated in the drug incident, which dates back to December.

On Dec. 6, Routt County Sheriff’s Office deputies pulled over a vehicle on Rabbit Ears Pass and conducted a vehicle search, according to Undersheriff Doug Scherar.

Scherar said a drug-sniffing dog found 154 grams of methamphetamine in the vehicle.

Steamboat Pilot & Today reported in December that two Craig residents — 31-year-old Jonathan F. Jenkins and 30-year-old Katrina A. Ramos, Adrian’s sister — were arrested on felony drug charges related to that incident.

Law enforcement did not immediately arrest Adrian Ramos, the third person in the vehicle, because he was suffering from medical complications, according to a report from the All Crimes Enforcement Team. The team focuses on drug crimes and comprises law enforcement officers from Routt and Moffat counties.

An investigation into the drug incident is ongoing, so further information is not available.

A trial for the three suspects has been scheduled in March.
