A search warrant served May 4 in Breckenridge led to accrual of a quarter pound of cocaine and the arrest of two brothers, according to the Summit County Drug Task Force. Officers arrested brothers

Reginaldo Lopez-Santiago, 24, and Eliseo Lopez-Santiago, 20, after a search warrant was served at the Gold Camp II condominiums on Ski Hill Road. Reginaldo is charged with possession with intent to distribute the 85.6 grams found at the residence in addition to 14.1 grams task force members purchased during three controlled buys, according to the task force. Eliseo is charged with possession and intent to distribute 14 grams. Authorities collected a total of 113.7 grams of cocaine including the controlled buys and warrant, and $891 was found and col-

lected at the condominium. The investigation, executed during the past two weeks, resulted from a crime-stoppers tip received in early April, said task force director and Summit County undersheriff Derek Woodman. Woodman said cocaine possession and distribution in Summit County is an “ongoing situation” that doesn’t fluctuate with the seasons. “(It’s) pretty bad,” he said. “In the last probably five search warrants we’ve done in the past eight weeks, we’ve gotten more than 10 ounces of cocaine — in search warrants and purchasing.”

Heritage Day is on Sunday Horse drive continued from 5 slickers who want to experience the lifestyle plan to drive about 700 head from Sombrero’s winter pasture in Browns Park to its spring pasture about 12 miles west of Craig. It will be a 62-mile trek, one that Broom said has been going on for about 40 years. To the general public, that journey will culminate Sunday when the herd passes through the center of Maybell, about 30 miles west of Craig on U.S. Highway 40, sometime around 11 a.m. Lisa Balstad, 40, has lived in Maybell for eight years after moving from Minnesota. She can remember the first time she saw the horses clip-clop through town. “I thought it was pretty amazing,” Balstad said.

build a family event around the horse drive’s arrival in town. Maybell Heritage Day will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, and organizers have planned more than food sales, Balstad said. About 17 local vendors will be selling their wares, from homemade soaps to handmade jewelry. There also should be a steady supply of live country music with the Gerber Boys and Greg Scott taking the stage during the day. Lastly, there will be a horsedrawn wagon ride and guided history tour of Maybell, which includes such tales as the haunting of the Victory Hotel.
