Last week, the Delta Police Department, Delta County Sheriff's Office and representatives from the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Marshal's Office jointly arrested three individuals on outstanding warrants.
On June 2, information was received that 25-year-old Justin Ritter could be located at a residence on Dodge Street in Delta. Ritter is wanted for a parole violation and assault.
Later the same day, Albert Romero, 25, was arrested at a residence on G Road. Romero is wanted in connection to felony weapon charges, second degree burglary, felony theft, first degree criminal trespass and failing to comply with the court.
The Cedaredge Police Department assisted with the apprehension of Jacob Pierce, 20, who was wanted on one felony warrant and five misdemeanor warrants.
All three suspects were apprehended without incident and transported to the Delta County Detention Facility. On Tuesday, Ritter and Pierce remained in jail; Romero had bonded out.
Delta Police Chief Robert Thomas and Sheriff Fred McKee send a heartfelt thank you to their law enforcement partners for their assistance with apprehending Ritter, Romero and Pierce.
"Because of the continued efforts to apprehend hoodlums, thugs and misfits that prey on our innocent children, and good, hardworking people in our community, the City and County of Delta is a safer place to live," said Chief Thomas. "We want the criminals in our community to know that if they cannot be productive, law-abiding members of this community we recommend they leave or turn themselves in."
