Bridges Principal on Drug Busts

December 18, 2012
Last week, Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team, known as TRIDENT, carried out a series of drug-related raids and arrests throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. So far, 16 people have been arrested, and 5 suspects remain at-large. Almost everyone arrested is under the age of 22, including three minors. Details about goods confiscated have not been released, but Glenwood Police Chief Terry Wilson said he would not describe the drugs found as being significant amounts.

In the same operation, Carbondale police confirmed that two students of Bridges High School were arrested on campus during the school day. Carbondale police chief Gene Schilling could not say which law enforcement agencies participated, but members of the Bridges administration reported both Carbondale police and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration being present. KDNK's Sophia Clark sat down with Bridges High School principal Lynn Bair to talk about the events that took place at the school.
