Justin Oakes
    On July 30, a handgun was reported stolen from the 2900 block of Dawn Drive, Grand Junction. Information provided to patrol deputies through the course of the investigation led them to the home of Justin Oakes, 28, of Grand Junction, also on the same block as the victim in this case. Deputies were able to retrieve the stolen handgun from the home of Justin, who was then charged with possession of a weapon by a previous offender and possession of 2-6 ounces of marijuana.
      Joshua Garcia
    Need extra funds? Just use your brother's debit and credit cards. Wrong. That's what Joshua Garcia, 26, of Clifton, is suspected of doing.
