Two more men suspected of selling heroin in Steamboat

— Two more men have been arrested on suspicion of dealing heroin in Steamboat Springs.

Jeffrey S. Truslow, 25, and Steven L. Truslow, 29, had warrants out for their arrests and were booked into Routt County Jail Friday. The men, who listed the same address in Walden, were arrested after an investigation by the All Crimes Enforcement Team drug task force.

The Truslows were both arrested on a felony charge of distributing heroin.

According to the charges, Jeffrey Truslow sold heroin on Feb. 16, and Steven Truslow sold heroin on Feb. 17.

The Truslows have also been charged with selling the drugs within 1,000 feet of a school. According to Routt County Chief Deputy District Attorney Matt Karzen, the sales took place within 1,000 feet of Steamboat Springs High School, but the sales did not occur on school property.

ACET commonly orchestrates the purchasing of drugs using controlled buys. Confidential sources and undercover officers are oftentimes used to purchase the drugs during controlled buys.

Affidavits related to the Truslow arrests have been sealed, so few details were available about the investigations. The District Attorney’s Office requested that the affidavits be sealed in the “interest of protecting the identity of confidential informants.”

Jeffrey Truslow was being held with a bond set at $75,000. Steven Truslow’s bond was set at $20,000. Both men are due back in court at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

It was not clear how the two men who share the same last name were related.

In a one-week period, ACET arrested three people on suspicion of selling heroin in Steamboat.

Cody Greatbatch was arrested April 25. He has been charged with two counts of unlawful distribution of heroin, a Class 3 drug felony. He has also been charged with two counts of distribution within 1,000 feet of a school, a Class 1 drug felony.
