Cops: Gun, drugs found at GJ home

Five people face a variety of charges after police discovered a marijuana growing operation, other drugs and a shotgun at a Grand Junction home, according to an arrest affidavit.

Colt Davidson, 20, was booked at the Mesa County Jail on suspicion of several offenses, including cultivation of marijuana and being a special offender eligible for enhanced sentence, according to the Grand Junction Police Department. Officers were allowed inside the home by Davidson for a search around 5:30 p.m. Friday at 1403 Glenwood Ave., unit 2, the Police Department said.

An officer noticed jars of marijuana and a bong,  the affidavit said. A shotgun loaded with two shells was leaning against a door, the affidavit said. A marijuana growing operation also was observed, the affidavit said.

The version of Davidson’s affidavit released Saturday included redacted statements and details.

Kristy Spry, 32, whom officers found sitting on a couch,  was at the home to buy marijuana and showed officers text messages on her cellphone confirming those plans, the affidavit said.

Davidson gave officers the combination to a safe in the home containing “numerous” Ecstasy pills and hallucinogenic mushrooms, the affidavit said.

Police Saturday declined to release arrest affidavits for two others arrested at the residence: Jordan Hice, 20, and Luis Villapando, 23. Both were jailed on suspicion of conspiracy and possession of marijuana.

Also in the home, James Sargent, 43, was arrested on a warrant alleging failure to appear in court, police said.
