PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - A jury in Pueblo has acquitted a former Walsenburg police officer charged with dealing crack cocaine.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (https://goo.gl/0dk59Z ) the jury deliberated for about an hour Tuesday before acquitting 32-year-old Gloria Suazo, who was accused of selling the drug a day after her release from jail for a federal case involving her ex-husband.

Police say Suazo was under surveillance in October when she made several trips from a home to locations throughout the city. A woman who interacted with Suazo said she bought cocaine from her.

Suazo is currently serving five years in prison on a federal charge of helping her ex-husband, 33-year-old Jeromy Suazo, possess and distribute heroin.

He is serving 10 years in prison for heroin distribution and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
