Mesa County, Colo. -- Patrol deputies overnight made two separate drug related arrests. The first occurred about 10:30 a.m., when  an abandoned vehicle was found in the roadway on 29 1/2 Road, with the driver's door left open, impeding traffic and the vehicle was running. Upon closer inspection of the vehicle and surrounding area, the deputy located Lance A. Koch in the front yard of the house where the vehicle was parked.

Lance currently has his driving status revoked for six restraint violations. An inventory of the vehicle produced just over 3 pounds of suspected marijuana, which far exceeds legal personal use amounts for an adult in Colorado. Lance Koch, 28, of Grand Junction, was booked into the Mesa County Detention Facility on one charge of Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Driving Under Revocation and a Traffic Violation.

Yesterday evening, patrol deputies responded to a report of something suspicious in the area of 33 Road and Price Ditch Road, Clifton. Deputies contacted two adult males towing a vehicle with license plates on the tow vehicle that connect to a separate case of a possible stolen vehicle. 

Deputies contacted Joshua Johnson, 21, of Clifton, in association with the towed vehicle and arrested him on a no bond warrant. In his personal item, deputies located just over 8 grams of suspected methamphetamine. Street value of meth is valued at approximately $100 per gram.

Joshua was booked into the Mesa County Detention Facility on one charge each of Possessing of Meth, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of an Illegal Weapon.
