Recent Arrests For Meth & Assault

Patrols Arrests For Assault, Meth

Mesa County, Colo. -- A party brawl left one man with a broken jaw and Antonio Rizzuto, 21, of Clifton, arrested on one charge of 2nd degree assault. The party occurred five or so days before Antonio was arrested, as it took deputies time to identify him and locate him.

After being mirandized, Antonio admitted to deputies he punched the victim at the party, which took place in the area of Cameo. Antonio is currently being held on a $25,000 cash or surety bond. His booking photo is not yet available.

Fabian Castillo, 20, of GJ
In the early morning hours of yesterday, a patrol deputy observed a bicycle rider in the area of I-70 Business Loop and Main Street, Grand Junction. The bike rider was wearing dark/black clothing and had no reflecting gear on the bike or himself. The deputy made contact with the bike rider, learning he had an active warrant for his arrest, issued in connection to an original case of harassment through the Grand Junction Police Department.

The suspect tried to flee from the scene but complied with deputies orders a short distance later. Prior to being booked into the Mesa County Detention Facility, deputies searched Fabian Castillo, 20, of Grand Junction, locating what initially appeared to be a revolver handgun attached to his front waistband--it was later determined to be a CO2 powered BB gun. A small container with suspected methamphetamine was also located in Fabian's pocket. In addition to the warrant, he was charged and booked into the jail on possession of a schedule I/II drug (meth), possession of drug paraphernalia, violation of a protection order, violation of bail bond conditions, obstructing a peace officer, resisting arrest, unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon/unlawful possession of weapons, contempt of court and bicycle not equipped with reflector.

Fabian is being held on an $8,500 cash or surety bond. For information on any inmate currently in our jail facility, visit our Inmate Inquiry webpage. Also, for information on breaking emergency related news from our area, follow us on Twitter @SheriffMesaColo using #MesaCounty and #GVCopBeat.
