Posted on 01/27/2017

GREELEY, Colo. (Weld County D.A.) - A Greeley woman accused of distributing large amounts of methamphetamine and heroin faces up to 20 years in the Department of Corrections after pleading guilty this morning in Weld County District Court.

Elizabeth Navarro, 30, pled guilty to two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Distribute and one count of Money Laundering. As part of the plea agreement, Navarro faces a sentencing range of 16 - 20 years in DOC. Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wrenn prosecuted the case.

Navarro was arrested in May 2016 after a nine-month investigation by the Weld County Drug Task Force into the sale and supply of illegal drugs in the county. During its investigation, the task force recovered more than 20 pounds of meth, half a pound of heroin, six pounds of processed marijuana, 300 marijuana plants, nine handguns and more than $110,000 in cash.

In total, 31 people were charged throughout the course of the investigation. Each co-defendant played different roles, from running and selling drugs to laundering money. According to investigators, Navarro was one of the primary distributors.

Navarro will be sentenced on March 1 at 2:00 p.m. in Division 15.
