Fort Collins House Fire Investigation Finds Marijuana Concentrate
A structure fire in northeast Fort Collins last week prompted officials into a marijuana investigation. The fire at a home on Eric Street was quickly put out by Poudre Fire Authority. During the fire investigation deputies with Larimer Sheriff's office were notified of possible marijuana concentrate stored in the garage and came with a search warrant.
40-year-old Jason Heimann who lived at that address with a woman and three children was booked on the following allegations:
• Possession with Intent to Distribute more than 5 Pounds but not more than 50 Pounds of Marijuana (Class 2 Drug Felony);
• Possession with Intent to Distribute more than 2.5 Pounds but not more than 25 Pounds of Marijuana Concentrate (Class 2 Drug Felony);
• Extraction of Marijuana Concentrate using Hazardous Substance (Class 2 Drug Felony);
• Child Abuse x 3 (Class 3 Misdemeanor);
• Reckless Endangerment (Class 3 Misdemeanor); and
• Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Heimann posted $20,000 bond and was released on February 25, 2017. A booking photo is attached. The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
