Colo. Man Accused Of Supplying Rawlins Drug Dealer
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — A Colorado man recently sentenced to prison on drug charges is accused of supplying a Rawlins cocaine dealer.
Fifty-year-old Manuel Ersmo Trujillo of Johnstown was sentenced to 18 years behind bars in Colorado on Jan. 3. The Rawlins Daily Times (http://bit.ly/wNNe6m) reported Wednesday that Trujillo is now in Carbon County to face drug charges in a case involving cocaine dealer John Sanchez.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Trujillo has a lawyer.
Last month, Sanchez pleaded guilty to selling and distributing cocaine in Carbon County for 10 years. Under a proposed deal, he would be sentenced to seven to 10 years in prison if he testifies against his alleged co-conspirators.
Another man from Johnstown, Colo. and seven Rawlins residents have also been charged in the case.
