Mug shots for Dominic Colangelo II, Tori Cook, and Beaux Turner.

Three residents of Craig have been arrested on drug charges. 35-year-old Dominic Colangelo II, 28-year-old Beaux Turner, and 23-year-old Tori Cook were arrested July 3, when there was a search at 919 Sequoia Avenue in Moffat County. All three were charged with different drug charges that have to do with possession and intent to distribute. Tori Cook has bonded out. Turner and Colangelo are still in the Moffat County Jail.

A man died in a rafting accident in Dinosaur National Monument Saturday. It happened at Triplet Falls on the Green River. 47-year-old Andrew Vasi from Newport Beach, California was part of a group of family and friends on a commercial rafting trip. Triplet Falls has a Class III difficulty rating, and the river flow was about 2,350 cubic feet per second at the time of the accident.

The Yampa River has reached its peak, and it’s finally on the way down. The Yampa peaked at 4,180 cubic feet per second on June 21, on a day with heavy snow and steady rain. The river has continued to go down since then. Over the weekend, it was at 1,500 cfs by the gauge at the Fifth Street Bridge. It should keep falling, which means tubing season is very close, and it could happen next weekend.
