BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — It was a nightmare come true. A couple who just bought a new house and moved in found out it had been used as a place to cook methamphetamine.
The couple bought the home as a fixer-upper in 2011. They had only been in the home about three weeks when someone came by and informed them the previous owner was making drugs inside the house.
It turns out the home was still highly contaminated and dangerous.
Authorities condemned the home and advised the couple to abandon their belongings they had just moved into it because they quickly became contaminated as well.
Kenneth Dimon, the man who sold the home was recently arrested in North Carolina.
A Boulder County grand jury indicted him last week. He has not been extradited back to Boulder County yet to face charges of theft, child abuse, forgery and reckless endangerment.
