Alleged Drug Dealer In Schools Arrested

Vargas

Teton County Sheriff’s detectives have arrested a 19 year-old man for delivery of controlled substances and conspiracy to deliver controlled substances into Jackson Hole High School and Summit High School. Sheriff’s Sergeant Tom Combs says Edwing Vargas’ arrest comes as a result of a several month drug investigation in which sheriff’s detectives learned of his direct involvement in bringing marijuana and cocaine into Jackson from other states.  Furthermore, Combs says detectives learned through investigation that Vargas had hired “help” to distribute drugs. Detectives also believe some of the transactions for controlled substances may have occurred on school grounds.  Altogether, Combs says the Teton County Prosecutors Office anticipates filing an additional 30 to 50 felony counts of delivery of controlled substances on Vargas.  So far, Combs says three juveniles are facing delinquency charges in juvenile court for conspiracy to deliver controlled substances.  Detectives do not believe Vargas acted alone in bringing marijuana and cocaine into Jackson and are pursuing additional leads.
