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.
