Grand Junction Police Officers Arrest Person of Interest in Mesa County Sheriff’s Office Death Investigation #GVCopBeat
This morning Grand Junction Police officers arrested 31-year-old Daniel Stetzel, who was labeled by the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office as a person of interest in a death investigation. More information about that case can be found here.
The officers were responding to a call about a person who was acting suspiciously near the Blue Heron boat ramp. Stetzel initially provided the officers with a fake name and birthdate. The officers found drug paraphernalia with residue in it in a bag in Stetzel’s possession and placed him under arrest for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. At that point Stetzel provided his real name. Stetzel had two active felony warrants for his arrest that were unrelated to the MCSO investigation. He was booked into jail on the following charges: parole violation, fugitive from other jurisdiction warrant, possession of a controlled substance, criminal impersonation, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
