Drug arrest made early Sunday in Steamboat
A Steamboat Springs man was arrested early Sunday morning on charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, and several other charges.
Raymond David Uhl, 50, was stopped because of a REDDI report, which stands for Report Every Drunk Driver Immediately, Steamboat Springs Sgt. Rich Brown said.
Officers suspected Uhl was driving under the influence, and after asking him to perform a voluntary roadside maneuvers test, arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs. Inside his vehicle, officers found almost 3 ounces of marijuana and a small amount of suspected cocaine, Brown said.
Uhl bonded out of jail for $5,000 at 6:30 a.m. Sunday, according to jail reports, and is scheduled to return to county court at 8:30 a.m. June 8 for charges including possession of a Schedule II drug, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, driving while under the influence of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
