Brothers arrested on meth, pot charges

Two brothers were arrested on suspicion of possessing and trying to sell crystal meth and marijuana after a search of their Oak Creek home turned up the drugs.

Richard Cyr, 49, and Raymond Cyr, 50, both of Oak Creek, were arrested Monday night on suspicion of methamphetamine possession and possession with intent to distribute.

Raymond Cyr was arrested on suspicion of possession of 1 to 8 ounces of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Richard Cyr was arrested on suspicion of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

On Monday, GRAMNET, the Grand, Routt and Moffat Narcotics Enforcement Team, was granted a search warrant for Raymond Cyr’s home at 115 Highland St., court documents indicate.

Seven officers from the Routt County Sheriff’s Office helped secure the scene to enter the Cyr residence. Five GRAMNET officers conducted the search, Routt County Lt. Richard Wood said.

Officers found a black metal box in Raymond Cyr’s bedroom. Inside the box, they found two sandwich bags containing 52.46 grams of marijuana and two metal canisters containing 7 grams of marijuana, according to court documents.

GRAMNET officials suspect the 7 grams found in the canisters was grown locally and was part of Raymond Cyr’s personal stash. The marijuana found in the sandwich bags appeared to be packaged for sale and is suspected to be a lower grade, less potent drug, according to court documents.

The metal box also contained a bundle of Ziploc bags, seven of which allegedly contained 1.2 grams of methamphetamine each. GRAMNET officers also counted 13 other bags that had meth residue inside. The metal box also held digital scales, according to court documents.

A piece of foil with meth inside also reportedly was found in Raymond Cyr’s back pants pocket. A woman who was visiting the home at the time of the search told authorities the brothers were about to smoke the meth when police arrived.

Inside Richard Cyr’s boot, GRAMNET officers reportedly found four bags containing a total of 1.5 grams of meth and two bags of marijuana, each weighing 8.4 grams.

GRAMNET also found a white canister containing 1.5 grams of meth inside a toolbox in a room with Richard Cyr’s wallet, according to court documents.

After the search, the brothers were transported to the Routt County Jail. Each was released Tuesday on $5,000 bond.
