Two arrested in outstanding warrant and narcotics bust

Commerce – Officers with Commerce Police Department and Delta County Sheriff's Department have recently arrested two individuals for outstanding warrants and narcotics trafficking.

The individuals, identified as Justin Ross Bacy, 26, and Christian Simone Relford, 20, were taken into custody on Thursday. Officers reportedly went to an apartment in the 1700 section of Oak Meadows Townhomes in Commerce.

Bacy, who had an outstanding misdemeanor and felony warrants out of Delta County, was located in the apartment. While officers were on scene, Relford, the female tenant, returned home.

Officers conducted a search of the apartment and located a large amount of powder cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, prescription narcotics, a 40 caliber handgun, with 2 loaded magazines and digital scales. The marijuana and cocaine were packaged for sale.

Due to two children being found inside the residence with access to illegal drugs, Child Protective Services was called to begin an investigation.
