NBC CO affiliate KOAA has reported that Denver Sheriff’s Deputy Sylvia Montoya has also been charged with federal drug crimes. KOAA’s report states that the Department of Justice charged that both Montoya and Spikes knowingly and intentionally possessed with the intent to distribute 28 grams or more or crack cocaine, five grams or more of methamphetamine, and maintained a residence for the purposed of distributing those drugs. That residence was an apartment in Lakewood, Colorado.
Interestingly enough, Montoya was the only one allowed out of jail on bond. Without a doubt, the sentencing portion of this case will be interesting as well. One has to wonder what other cover-ups lie beneath the shield in Denver, Colorado.
Denver, CO — Well, Denver Police are in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons again. Fox Denver has reported a Denver Sheriff’s deputy has been placed on “investigatory leave” after police pulled her over on March 28th and arrested her passenger. KDVR refuses to name the 46-year-old deputy as she was not charged with a crime. Her passenger, 36-year-old Timothy Spikes is a well known violent gang member.
Spikes was wanted on a warrant out of Arapahoe County when Denver police took him into custody. According to the police, the timeline of events is as follows:
- A narcotics dog was called to the 4600 block of Wadsworth and alerted officers to possible drugs in the car.
- A search of the vehicle revealed $3,000 in cash in the center console and an empty drug baggie with white residue in it.
- Spikes was found with $1,150.00 in cash and three phones on him. When he was strip searched, he was found with a bag of black tar heroine between the buttocks.
KDVR’s problem solvers reports that Spikes was housed in a part of a detention facility that the deputy supervised in 2017.
The writing is on the wall. This deputy was illegally engaged in drug trafficking with Spikes. The fact that she was not immediately charged, as any other civilian would have been, proves that police privilege continues to prevail in the face of justice. The cash and drug paraphernalia in the center console was enough for probable cause for an arrest coupled with the items obtained from her passenger. We will be following this story closely as the Denver police department has a consistent history of cover-ups and blatant corruption.
