The undercover operation was initiated after receiving information that 23 year old Mateo Serna Guitierrez, from Dotsero, may be selling cocaine. During the ensuing investigation detectives located Serna Guitierrez in a parking lot in Gypsum. He was in a vehicle driven by 24 year old Jesus Lorenzo Gonzalez Payan, from Mexico.

All three suspects were booked into the Eagle County Detention Facility on Conspiracy to Commit a Class 3 Felony, Distribution of Cocaine, and Possession of Cocaine.
