[ARCHIVED] Raid Uncovers Meth, Heroin & Sawed-Off Shotgun at Denver Home


A Denver man is facing several charges after a search of his home earlier this month uncovered methamphetamine, heroin and a sawed-off shotgun.

James C. Simmons, 48, is charged with felony counts of possession with intent to deliver and illegal possession of a firearm, and related counts regarding the Jan. 5 search.

The Lancaster County Drug Task Force searched Simmons’ Corey Drive home after an investigation, which included surveillance, uncovered suspected drug-dealing activity.

At the home, detectives found:

- 11 grams of methamphetamine

- 5 bags of heroin

- A Sawed-off Mossberg shotgun

- A collapsible baton

- Drug paraphernalia

- $1,970 cash

The shotgun and baton are prohibited weapons, so Simmons is charged with two misdemeanors regarding those.

Simmons is prohibited from having firearms due to a prior felony burglary conviction.

Since arraignment, Simmons posted $100,000 bail via a bondsman.

Assistant District Attorney Jared Hinsey approved the charges.

Simmons is presumed innocent.
