Traffic Crash
Title
Woodmen Rd and N. Powers Bv
Location
On 8/22/16, officers responded to a roll over traffic accident south of Woodmen Rd on Powers Bv. Upon arrival, officers found that all of the north bound lanes were blocked by four vehicles that were involved in the accident.

The investigation determined that a U-Haul was going south on Powers when it tried to make a U-Turn at an access in the median designated for emergency vehicles only. When the vehicle attempted to turn, it crossed over another traffic lane where a south bound pickup with a large trailer was traveling. The truck broadsided the U-Haul. Both vehicles traveled across the center median where they collided with a north bound SUV. That SUV rolled, striking a fourth vehicle which was also north bound in the next lane over.

The driver of the U-Haul was transported to the hospital. No other people were injured in the crash. North bound Powers had to be shut down until all of the vehicles could be removed by tow trucks, causing significant traffic back ups in the area.

The driver of the U-Haul was cited for careless driving.

Title
705 South Nevada Avenue
Location
On August 18, 2016, detectives from the Colorado Springs Metro Vice, Narcotics, and Intelligence Division, a multi-agency drug task force consisting of detectives from the Colorado Springs Police Department, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, the Teller County Sheriff’s Office, and the Woodland Park Police Department, assisted members of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and a member of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) with the execution of three separate search warrants regarding illegal residential marijuana grows. Two of the search warrants were executed within the City of Colorado Springs and one in unincorporated El Paso County. Items seized in the search warrants included approximately 537 marijuana plants, three firearms, ammunition and an undetermined amount of U.S. currency.

During the execution of the search warrants, the GBI arrested Felipe Hurtado for six outstanding felony warrants from the State of Georgia. Charges include three counts of cargo theft, one count of possession of tools for the commission of a crime, one count of fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, and one count of trafficking in controlled substances (Schedule II). All charges are related to the theft of a shipment of approximately 8.9 million hydrocodone tablets in Cartersville, Georgia, which occurred in July 2014, by Hurtado and other members of a criminal organization.

Prior to his arrest for the theft of the 8.9 million hydrocodone tablets, Hurtado relocated to the general area of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and began to grow marijuana under the pretext of medical marijuana.
