LA man suspected of dealing meth

— A 37-year-old Los Angeles man was arrested in Steamboat Springs Wednesday on suspicion of dealing methamphetamine.

Travis M. Kohn faces charges of felony possession with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of a protection order. He also had two warrants out of Adams County.

Steamboat police were investigating a harassment call on the west side of town when they encountered Kohn. Police knew he had warrants, and they had information he was living on the west side of town.

Before being arrested, Kohn tried to pass his backpack to a woman.

According to an arrest affidavit, police noticed Kohn had track marks on his arms.

Police searched his backpack at Routt County Jail and found four bags containing a crystal substance. The material weighed 9.6 grams and tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the affidavit.

Police also found unused bags, six unused needles, a scale and medication used to treat a dependence on opioids, the affidavit states.
