Colorado Springs Police say they’ve made six arrests in connection with an investigation into narcotics sales in Acacia Park.

Police say they received a tip in early February about the drug activity in the park. Members of the Metro VNI unit were able to make multiple purchases in the park, and as a result of that investigation officers got three arrest warrants and one search warrant.

The search warrant was executed on March 1, and two people were arrested. Officers say they found 114.4 grams of marijuana and $585 cash inside the home. The drugs were packaged for sale.

On March 6, two other people were arrested in Acacia Park. Meanwhile, they also found someone in possession of methamphetamine and marijuana. That suspect was also arrested.

In total, police say five adults were arrested for felony distribution. The other suspect was arrested for a misdemeanor.

    Well it is no surprise this happend although it seems like forever since its been on the news and seeing how there is a police station right there or whatever it is. I know i see cop cars posted there most times i pass by. I smoke and yes i am human so that must make me a liberal. Its not the weed its the people who cant handle themselves and decide to do stupid $h1t or decide hey ill sell my weed right in front of a school and a makeshift police station.

    VNI had to receive a tip about drug sales in AP? Really? Did the tipster have to track them down at a strip club, or where they just getting trashed at Hooters?

    Registered voters will get a chance to tax and regulate marijuana sales in November. Amendment 64 will allow heavily regulated shops to sell marijuana to adults 21 and older. This should effectively remove marijuana from the inventory of street dealers across our city. If you want to have a voice in this issue, please make you are registered to vote. We know that prohibition does not work, so lets try something different. Marijuana is dangerous when it is illegal, not illegal because it is dangerous.

      And your brilliant solution for the onvious conflict with federal law? Notice that dispensaries cannot get banks to take their business and still have the DEA enforcing 1000 foot limits? Where are these heavily regulated shops going to exist? Are you suggesting that age limitations on shops selling will eliminate street dealers, just like teens never give a guy 10$ to buy them a six-pack? 64 is a fool's errand and only wastes state resources.

      What would change? Anyone can get MMJ as it is. When I see deals in acacia park, it appears to be kids under 21. Using your logic, my yes vote will stop street deals, but I beg to differ. Oh and let's not forget federal law. All the marijuana BS is theatre. I was undecided until recently, but after doing my own unbiased research, it's a no vote for me. You people need to get a little more intelligent with your movement. Another irritating thing is that the majority of you have an anarchist mentallity and act like a bunch of self entitled cry babies. Good luck though.
