Police last week were conducting a search in the south Grand Mesa area for a wanted suspect.
Cedaredge Police Chief Dan Sanders said that officers were looking for a felony suspect who had been reported in the area. The suspect is wanted in connection with several counts including menacing and disorderly conduct.
A telephone alert of the search went out to subscribers of the county's phone alert service, the chief said.
Several areas including trailer park and campground-type facilities were visited by armed officers as part of the search.
