Judge Sandra Miller denied a motion to reduce the $100,000 bond for Leobardo Hernandez during a hearing in county court July 9. Hernandez was arrested after a lengthy investigation by the 7th Judicial Drug Task Force, which is comprised of investigators from Delta, Montrose and San Miguel counties.
A second arrest was made in Montrose. Jose Arellano was taken into custody but has since posted $25,000 bond. Judge Miller cited the seriousness of the charges against Hernandez, which include seven counts of distribution of cocaine.
