A 34-year-old man was arrested and 12 others were cited Wednesday following complaints about drug trafficking and disorderly conduct at a Cañon City park, police said.
Kenneth Elliot is suspected of distributing and possessing drugs, and a dozen other people - whose names were not released - received summonses for several offenses, including marijuana possession, careless driving, littering and smoking in public parks violation, police said. Their arrest and citations came after citizens reported to police the alleged activities at Rudd Park.
Officers and detectives with Cañon City police and the Fremont County Drug Task Force conducted the operation.
"We encourage citizens to continue to bring these types of incidents to our attention," police said, "so we may be able to work toward a common goal."
