Chaffee County Sheriff Pete Palmer reported to county commissioners Tuesday about arrests made during October in connection with a drug ring.

Authorities announced the arrests of 15 people Oct. 11 on various felony charges of illegal distribution and sale of controlled substances, and four more were arrested later in the month, Palmer said in his sheriff’s report at the regular commissioners’ meeting in Buena Vista.

The investigation that led to the arrests started when officers found information about abuse of prescription drugs in Chaffee County. The Chaffee County Drug Task Force developed more information that led the investigation to spread to include Alamosa, the report said.

The investigation eventually included Alamosa Police Department, Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado State Patrol, the 11th Judicial District attorney and Salida Police Department.

Colorado Bureau of Investigation provided undercover operatives, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s Tactical Diversion Squad assisted.

In other business, commissioners:

  • Approved a plat amendment for property at 29050 CR 331, Buena Vista.
  • Passed a resolution amending Resolution 2011-50 regarding CR 294.
  • Passed Resolution 2012-48 allowing the county attorney to settle tax appeals below $1,000.
