urendaAt around 2:00pm on Monday afternoon, officers with the Grand Junction Police Department were dispatched to the 800 Block of 4th Avenue on a report of a felony menacing occurring with a handgun in the area.  It was reported that a verbal altercation had occurred between two subjects, with one male shouting threats of violence to another, attempting to start a fight, and ultimately displaying a handgun in his waistband.

As officers arrived on scene, the suspect fled the area in a Jeep at a high rate of speed.  Shortly before reaching South 7th Street, the suspect, later identified as Pablo Urenda, 27, came face to face with a patrol vehicle, and was taken into custody.

In plain view in the Jeep the suspect was driving was a handgun, which was later discovered to be loaded, with a round in the chamber.  A records check of the gun confirmed it to be stolen.  A criminal history check of Urenda revealed that he is a convicted felon.

Upon being taken into custody, Urenda was also found to be in possession of suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, including items commonly used in the distribution of illegal drugs, as well as identification and financial transaction devices for unknown subjects.

Urenda was remanded to the Mesa County Jail on charges of Felony Menacing (F5), Possession of Weapons by Previous Offenders (F5), Possession of Schedule I/II Controlled Substance (DF4), Unlawfully Carrying a Concealed Weapon (M2), Driving While Revoked as a Habitual Offender, Criminal Possession of a Financial Device (M1), Criminal Possession of an Identification Document (M1), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (DPO), and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule I/II Controlled Substance (DF3).

      It says he’s a previous offender, with nothing being said about ever being deported. Of he was here illegally it would have been mentioned in the article.
