Special to the Plaindealer
On Wednesday, a joint investigation by the Ouray County Sheriff’s Office, the 7th Judicial Drug Task Force and the U.S. Postal Inspector’s Office resulted in the arrest of Eugene Perkins, 58, of Ridgway. The three agencies executed a search warrant at Perkins’ residence, located in the 8000 block of Highway 62, after receiving information that Perkins was obtaining methamphetamine through the mail.
At the time of his arrest, Perkins was in possession of over 8 grams of methamphetamine. Several firearms were also seized from the residence. It is illegal for Perkins to possess firearms as a previously convicted felon. Perkins was booked in to the Montrose County Jail and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Firearms by a Felon, and other Special Offender charges related to the amount and method of receiving the methamphetamine.
This report was provided by the Ouray County Sheriff's Office.
