Two 19-year-olds have been arrested following a two-month long drug investigation into marijuana and cocaine sales in the Dillon Valley area.

The Summit County Drug Task Force says Raul Garcia-Ruiz and Floyd Gordon Davis are thought to be part of a large-scale drug operation.

“Both suspects face felony charges,” said Derek Woodman, director of the Summit County Drug Task Force.

After searching Garcia-Ruiz’s home at 1173 Straight Creek Dr., police found 6.6 ounces of what is believed to be cocaine and a large amount of money. Garcia-Ruiz was arrested on March 26.

“The street value of the cocaine is $6,500 to $11,000,” Woodman said.

Garcia-Ruiz was also charged in a separate incident ” the sale of 81.8 grams of suspected marijuana.

Police who searched Davis’ bedroom in an apartment ” at 1323 Straight Creek Dr., Bldg., A, Unit 304 ” discovered a scale that could be used to weigh “illegal drugs” and several small razor blades, one having cocaine residue on it. No other drugs were found. Davis turned himself in late on March 27.

“It always starts with a lead,” said Judy Scollard, of the Summit County Drug Task Force. ” … This one happened to lead into more and more suspects.”

The Summit County Drug Task Force, the Silverthorne Police, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and the Breckenridge Police Department all took part in the investigation.
