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

Some members of the parish have apparently considered switching to another church because of issues like panhandlers described as aggressive and foulmouthed. Additionally, St. John's had to take out a restraining order on one person associated with the house. His alleged behavior included:
Drinking all the wine at communion, laughing out loud at inappropriate times, climbing over the pews during Mass, wearing a dark hoodie covering his head (which is considered disrespectful during Mass), and eating donuts and drinking coffee in and out during Mass. On one occasion, he stood up during a Mass making shooting gestures, at which time the Church's Liturgy Director called the police.The assorted factors ultimately convinced the Boulder County District Attorney's Office to file a complaint against Nuanez asking that the home be declared a public nuisance -- an action that could lead to it being seized and closed. After that, authorities are asking for a "permanent order of abatement limiting occupancy of the property to Silverio Nuanez, one adult blood relative, and any related minor children under the age of 11, at any given time."
Clearly, the crowd at the Nuanez place yesterday didn't fit within these parameters, and the authorities have had enough. The Longmont Times Call notes that Nuanez didn't contest the Boulder DA's suit -- "and now prosecutors are asking for Boulder District judge to allow them to move forward with sanctions, including seizing and closing the property for up to a year."

Here's a 7News report about yesterday's actions, followed by the complaint. Note that his first name in the document is spelled "Silvario;" however, the DA's office informs us this is an error, and "Silverio" is the proper spelling.
