Jason Gonzalez and Stacia Kendrick busted, baby seized, in latest raid of meth "flop house"

Some of the items seized during yesterday's raid.
As we've reported, Nuanez lives at 330 Collyer Street in Longmont, and as captured in the following interactive graphic (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map"), the place looks nice enough:

Despite its modest size, though, the house apparently has had lots of people living in it over time. A December raid -- one of several that have targeted the structure -- turned up thirteen residents, including an infant, with conditions described as "squalid."

According to the complaint against Nuanez, who's listed as the property's owner along with his late wife, he "has stated to associates that he has been trading narcotics for rent at his house, thus allowing his home to become a 'flop house' for methamphetamine users."

No wonder police officers are so familiar with Chez Nuanez. The document (on view below) counts 114 calls for service since January 2008, with a wide variety of complaints represented. They include (deep breath):
Criminal mischief; civil problems; parking complaints; disturbances; drunk subjects; noise complaints; loose dog; warrant arrests for wanted parties; domestic disturbance; narcotics complaints; theft; restraining order violations; trespass; harassment; summons issued; unwanted parties; assault; loitering; and suspicious persons/activities.
And that's not to mention the assorted SWAT team raids, outlined in the complaint like so:

• In August, 2011, two people were reportedly arrested and two bags of meth were found, along with drug paraphernalia.

• In October 2012, three people were arrested, and five bags of meth were discovered.

• In the aforementioned December 2013 raid, five people were arrested, but no drugs were found, apparently because residents were able to flush their stashes down the toilet before cops entered. But drug paraphernalia and a stolen bicycle were located, as was an infestation of bed bugs -- only one reason the four month old living there was turned over to social services.

All of this activity frustrates those living near Nuanez, as well as the staff and congregation of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, directly across the street.

Continue for more about the latest raid on Silverio Nuanez's home, including additional photos, a video and the aforementioned lawsuit.

Why is this so hard for the DA's office to do, in other cities they knock down drug houses, add up all the costs and take the house from the owners of these crack dens, functioning cities do this all the time. Why is this such a problem in this city to get any relief? Will it happen when they find the corpse of a child in the house? Neighbors and church attendees start dying? What's going to motivate the city, except a lawsuit by every person surrounding that pest hole against the mayor and city council? Sue the city since they don't seem to be able to get rid of an elderly addict and rat junkies who should be in a jail anyway.

It's no surprise the loser in the pic above is wearing a hat with the word 'FELON' on it. Attention criminal morons: Advertising that you are a FELON on your hat might draw the attention of law enforcement officials. You think?

I just wanted to take a moment out the thank law enforcement in Colorado ever since we legalize weed it seems there have been a great deal more meth busts. Thank you for going after the real criminals, thank you for putting your life on the line to deal with these highly unstable drug addicts.

How many times do these kind of parents, get their kids back? Just how many chances do they get? Is nothing done until the kid ends up dead? There should be a law for mandatory sterilization in these cases. That way, they cannot continue to pop out babies to abuse and neglect. Enough is Enough!!

I spoke with you on jam Cruise once, after noticing you were a self taught, left-handed drummer playing a right handed kit. Reading music is a good thing to learn & know. But then it's good to let it go & forget about it as well. You guys tore it up again on the boat this past year!

you are a clueless idiot. the police are 'against' marijuana legalization, you moron. If they had a choice, they would still be arresting people for minor weed infractions. Did you make it through high school?

@seanmilano  "I live next door to this house"


So how many $20 blow-jobs have you obtained?

@seanmilano Your hero worship is pathetic. Police organizations around the globe seek to 'disarm' people and take away their ability to defend themselves against meth-heads and other criminal freaks in our society. This 'safety' you speak of is a joke. Our neighborhoods would be 100% safer if neighborhood organizations were able to intervene on their own and literally RUN these scumbags out. Currently, we get to rely on a gang of cowards who's only purpose in life is self protection. Do your homework history. Police throughout history have ALWAYS been a dredge of society and ALWAYS end up killing people by the millions. Why do you think they devote so much energy and money to arm themselves with weapons to use against their own people? Wake up, slave. This is not for your protection, I assure you.

@ShesNotNormal  Um wow never even insinuated that the police are against marijuana in Colorado. I was GENUINELY thanking the law enforcement. Meth is the worst drug on the planet earth. It takes good people and turns them into monsters that are capable of anything. Tweekers are prone to violent out bursts against anyone for slights real or imaginary. To deal with busting meth scum everyday is an extremely dangerous job. These are seriously dangerous people. Our men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line everyday to keep people like these scumbags off the street. They deserve some recognition every once and while for their hard work. So again thank you to the men and women of law enforcement who go after real criminals.

@ShesNotNormal @seanmilano   These "neighborhood organizations" you dream of would just morph right back into a police force.  This exact phenomenon is taking place right now in Mexico in Michoacan and other places.  Do YOUR "homework history."

@seanmilano @ShesNotNormalThat's not what I heard. I heard that this is working in some areas. The people of Mexico have started waking up to the fact that police are corrupt. You don't ask the fox to watch the hen-house. You don't call Col. Sanders to save a suicidal chicken either.
