DEA's Most Wanted Fugitives From Denver for 2016

Back in July 2014, when we first shared the list of the DEA Denver branch's most wanted fugitives, there were so many of them — 51 in total — that we had to split the roster in half and publish a second post.

The agency has apparently been very busy since then.

The current most wanted list is less than half the size it was around a year and a half ago. Only 25 of the original 51 remain on the DEA's radar, and not a single new person has been added. Those still being sought are wanted for narco-crimes typically involving heroin, meth, cocaine and marijuana. As you'll notice, the vast majority of them are from Mexico.

See the updated list on the two pages below. If you recognize anyone, you're encouraged to call the U.S. Marshals Service 24-hour number: 1-877-WANTED2 (1-877-926-8332).
