Apsen, Colorado is most known for fun on the slopes.

But there was a new past time that disturbed one father. Drug dealing.

When he found that his 17-year-old daughter was buying and using drugs, he notified police about the man he claimed sold her the drugs.

The anonymous letter captured officers’ attention, and they went to work investigating the alleged dealer. There were no arrests for a while, but coincidentally when they were busting another suspected dealer, they noticed Thomas Simmons on the surveillance video. Officers say that he was trying to conceal drugs that were being tossed by then target Max Puder.

That was enough for officers to obtain a tampering warrant. When they searched his car and home, officers fond “multiple types of drugs, paraphernalia, and money. The drugs recovered included Ecstasy, cocaine, psilocybin mushrooms, and approximately 5 grams of other drugs were collected as evidence.”

It all goes back to the father that wrote that note. His letter may not have resulted in an immediate arrest, but he put Simmons on the officers’ radar. And eventually, they were able to bust him.

This is an example of a pro-active parent who refused to stand back and let drugs poison the teens in his community. If you need information about the kinds of drugs in your neighborhood, or perhaps the slang names kids are using to talk about them right under your nose, click HERE.
