Tom McGhee with The Denver Post called us saying he “heard a rumor that Yuma County was a hotbed of illegal marijuana grows and cartel activity.” Looks like his story ended up taking a bit of a different tone.

We appreciate Mr. McGhee writing a pretty accurate account of what he found way out here, but more importantly, we are grateful that he actually came out in person to visit with us and even do a ride-a-long to see for himself what Deputies are facing. That’s the best way to get your questions answered too, and we invite you to do the same.

To apply for a ride-along, fill out the application packet available HERE and return it to the Sheriff’s Office in Wray.
