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

The complaint says that in response to the activities at the Nuanez place, St. John's has had to hire a security guard to patrol the property -- and that individual "routinely encounters individuals trespassing on the grounds, using narcotics they purchased across the street, acting in highly unusal manners and cleaning up drug paraphernalia," including broken meth pipes and syringes.

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.

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?

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.
