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.
