With a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Delta Police Department targeted DUI enforcement Aug. 22 and Aug. 25. Over a 40-hour period, Chief Luke Fedler said DPD officers made 53 traffic contacts, but zero arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Four citations were issued and one arrest was made on an outstanding warrant.
Two fatal accidents occurred in Delta County within a two-day span last week.
Casey Gillenwater, 25, of Delta was killed the afternoon of Wednesday, Sept. 13, in a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 133 outside of Hotchkiss.
