Andrew Durdy Arrested Twice For Reportedly Having Illegal Drugs, Including Fentanyl

GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) - Greeley Police arrested a 26-year-old man for reportedly selling large amounts of illegal drugs in the area. They say they received information about Andrew Durdy in June of 2021.

A month later, undercover investigators started buying the narcotics from Durdy. The investigation lasted about three months. Officials say Durdy sold them methamphetamine and fake "M-30" pills which had fentanyl in them.

In late September, the Weld County Drug Task Force served a search warrant at Durdy's home and seized the following:

  • 14 grams of suspected heroin
  • about 120 fake M-30 pills containing fentanyl
  • 1.5 lbs of suspected marijuana
  • 1.3 grams of suspected fentanyl power
  • Suspected LSD and MDMA
  • Five firearms
  • Ammuntion

While Durdy was arrested and booked into jail, he was released after he posted bond on Dec. 9.

Weld County law enforcement then arrested Durdy again on March 2 for six outstanding felony warrants related to the previous drug distribution charges. On that day, authorities say they found 470 more of the same M-30 pills.
