Man suspected of selling heroin
October 26, 2016
Steamboat Springs — A 26-year-old Steamboat Springs man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of distributing heroin.
This was the second arrest by the All Crimes Enforcement Team drug task force in the past two weeks related to the sale of heroin.
Mark McIntosh was advised of his rights Wednesday by Judge James Garrecht.
Attorney Larry Combs represented McIntosh.
Combs asked Garrecht to lower McIntosh’s bond from $20,000.
Combs said McIntosh has no felony convictions, and they were working to get him admitted to a treatment facility for substance abuse.

Garrecht chose not to reduce the bond.
He said people convicted of selling heroin in Routt County typically go to prison.
“So, this is a pretty serious issue for him,” Garrecht said.
The circumstances surrounding McIntosh’s arrest were not available, but the All Crimes Enforcement Team typically conducts undercover controlled purchases of drugs when conducting their investigations.
An arrest affidavit outlining the investigation has been sealed because the case involves a confidential source.
