KUSA - The son of US Senator Mark Udall (D-Colorado) faces felony charges in Boulder County for breaking into cars and possessing heroin.
According to the Boulder County Sheriff's Office, 26-year-old Jed Udall was released on bond Wednesday night after being booked on three counts of first-degree criminal trespass and possession of a controlled substance.
All four counts are felonies.
Deputies say Jed Udall broke into three cars on the 4700 block of Eldorado Springs Drive around noon on Wednesday, saying that they also found heroin on Jed Udall at the time.
This is not the first time Jed Udall has been in trouble with the law. He was cited in December for stealing Advil and Imodium from a Boulder King Soopers, according to a police report.
Sen. Udall and his wife Maggie have two children, Jed, and a daughter named Tess.
"Maggie and I are deeply distressed to learn of our son's arrest," Sen. Mark Udall said in a written statement provided to 9NEWS. "We love our son and stand with him in his commitment to getting the treatment he needs. We appreciate the private space to deal with this as a family."
Jed Udall was released on a $1,500 bond Wednesday. His next court appearance is Feb. 20.
