The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office arrested three men in the El Jebel area of Eagle County on Saturday Feb. 6, 2010 after they sold one ounce (28 grams) of cocaine for $800 to an undercover detective.

Jose Miguel Cruz-Chimal, 21, of Carbondale; Nicolas Valencia-Alvarez, 31, and Marin Ibarra-Mellin, 33, both from Glenwood Springs were each charged with possession and distribution of cocaine (both felonies) and have $50,000 bonds each. Ibarra-Mellin had fake identification cards and gave a false name when arrested so he was also charged with felony criminal impersonation and possession of forged instruments.

All three men are in the United States illegally and have ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) detainers.

The Bureau of Land Management’s Northwest Colorado Resource Advisory Council will meet Feb. 25 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the BLM office in Silt., which is located at 2300 River Frontage Road.

The meeting is open to the public, with public comment periods scheduled for 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Agenda topics include: White River Field Office Oil and Gas Amendment, Wild Horse and Burro update and updates from local offices.

The Northwest Colorado RAC is one of three advisory councils to the BLM in Colorado. RACs are composed of 15 citizens appointed by the Secretary of the Interior. Individuals serving in each RAC represent a broad range of public land interests, including environmental, local government, and commercial activity. The Northwest RAC advises the Grand Junction, White River, Little Snake, Kremmling and Colorado River Valley BLM field offices.
