LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — An undercover investigation of an illegal drug operation based in northern Colorado and spanning as far as California and Mexico has yielded arrests of three men and the seizure of approximately $60,000 worth of methamphetamine.

Richard Todd Henson, 56, Edgar Josue Gonzalez-Macias, 31, and Jose Reynaldo Gonzalez-Macias, 35, allegedly sold methamphetamine to undercover Northern Colorado Drug Task Force investigators. Henson was arrested on Jan. 4 for two counts of distribution of a controlled substance. He posted $5,000 bond and was released.

Henson, of Loveland, was arrested again on Thursday and charged with three felonies, including position of a controlled substance. He was released the same day after posting $10,000 bond.

On March 1, the NCDTF seized 10 pounds of methamphetamine and five handguns, including a gun that was reported stolen, from a home in Loveland.  According to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, the estimated street value of the seized meth is roughly $60,000.

Jose and Edgar Gonzalez-Macias, both of Fort Collins, were arrested on Feb. 28 on felony drug charges. They posted their bonds and were released on March 1 and March 2, respectively. Both have failed to appear in court. The sheriff’s office believes they have fled to Mexico.
