LONGMONT — The suspect in an early-morning raid inadvertently walked a stash of cocaine out to waiting officers, according to Longmont Police.
Brenda Lindsay, 45, was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs, intent to distribute drugs, and possession of a handgun, said Sgt. Tim Lewis of the department’s Special Enforcement Unit.
Police began the raid on Lindsay’s home on the 2500 block of Beech Court when they knocked on her front door at about 5:20 a.m., Lewis said. She walked outside carrying a makeup case containing more than 30 packets of cocaine before she realized the people at her door were police officers.
“She brought her whole stash out,” Lewis said. “It just went really well.”
The quantity of drugs seized was not significant, but the bust should improve the neighborhood, he said.
“The selling of cocaine out of that home was going on way too long,” he said.
Officers also seized a bobcat carcass from the freezer and raptor talons. Police are working with the Colorado Department of Wildlife on the discovery, which could lead to additional summonses.
Investigators also found several guns inside the home, police said.
Court records show Lindsay was on probation when she was arrested Wednesday. She was convicted of tampering last year and placed on a two-year probation.
