CBI to analyze chemicals from pot bust

Investigators said no arrests yet related to Thursday raid near Hayden


— Routt County Sheriff's Office Investigator Ken Klinger said there have not yet been any arrests in the bust of a residence east of Hayden on Thursday, and deputies are preparing to submit evidence to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

During the raid, officers confiscated six marijuana plants, an undisclosed amount of cured marijuana and some chemicals. Klinger said investigators will turn the chemicals over to CBI for analysis, and the marijuana will be weighed later this afternoon.

No one was at the home when the search warrant was served at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Investigator Mike Curzon said.

Curzon said the marijuana found in the home was not packaged in a way that would indicate it was prepared for distribution, and investigators are trying to figure out if the suspect has a medical marijuana license.

Deputies have not yet released the name of the suspect.
