The sheriff’s office said Summer Demetrius Jones, 32, of Denver, was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance; possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance; maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Investigators said they had been watching Jones’ Campground Road residence for weeks and had made several undercover drug purchases there. Detectives executed a search warrant about 9 p.m. Thursday and said they found a small amount of crack cocaine and marijuana and $2,000 in cash.

Authorities said they also learned that Jones had outstanding warrants from 2011. She was charged with additional counts of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine, and selling and delivering cocaine.
