BRECKENRIDGE, Colorado ” Local authorities seized the largest collection of weapons in Summit County history during a recent drug bust in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Police confiscated 12 guns and more than six ounces of marijuana during an Oct. 15 raid after the Summit County Drug Task Force received a tip that drug deals were happening at a home in Warrior’s Mark.
Officers from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and the Breckenridge Police Department obtained a search warrant for 1309 Broken Lance Drive and were able to confiscate seven handguns, three rifles, two shotguns, 68 switchblade knives, a pair of brass knuckles and several boxes of various ammunition.
So far this year, the drug task force has executed 12 search warrants in the county.
“This is the most weapons we have ever seized,” said Capt. Jaime FitzSimons of the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. “Surveillance activity at the residence was consistent with drug dealing, coupled with an interview with someone that had purchased marijuana at the residence.”
Police arrested Terrence Ross for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a dangerous weapon.
“In terms of marijuana busts, it was a fair amount, but I would not consider it a lot,” FitzSimons said.
Ross posted a $7,500 bond the day of his arrest, and a preliminary court date has been scheduled for Nov. 12 at 1:30 p.m.
