Feds Find Guns, Ammo In Largest Operation Against CO Medical-Pot Firms


When federal agents swooped into a swanky Denver-area home last week as part of widespread raids tied to medical-marijuana businesses, they found a person inside holding a loaded gun, according to a court document reported by the Denver Post. By the time they were done searching the $1.3 million home Thursday, agents had collected five assault-style rifles, five handguns, a shotgun and a “large cache of ammunition.”

The details on the raids — disclosed yesterday — come from an affidavit in a criminal case and provide new context for the largest federal operation against medical-marijuana businesses ever in Colorado. Agents executed “approximately 15” search warrants. Sources told the Post that the raids — which targeted 10 men — were part of an investigation into a single enterprise that detectives believe may have ties to Colombian drug cartels.
