Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall’s 26-year-old son Jed was arrested for heroin possession and breaking into cars in Eldorado Springs Wednesday.

City of Boulder rangers and Boulder County sheriff’s deputies were originally called to the small foothills community on reports of a man breaking into cars, the Daily Camera reported.

Jed Udall was found with heroin in his pocket, a syringe and a spoon. He told the officers he’d used the drug 48 hours prior to his arrest, according to the paper.

He also told officers he was looking in the cars for jumper cables for a friend’s vehicle. The Camera reported that one car owner reported $78 missing, but that no large sums of cash were found on Jed Udall.

“Maggie and I are deeply distressed to learn of our son’s arrest,” Sen. Mark Udall said in a statement to the Daily Camera. “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 cited for petty theft in December for leaving a grocery store without paying for over-the-counter medication. He also has two non-extraditable warrants out of North Carolina for breaking and entering and larceny, the Camera reported, citing police reports.

Jed Udall was booked on four counts of first-degree trespassing and one count of possession of a controlled substance. He was released on $1,500 bond. He is due on court Feb. 13 on the theft charge and on Feb. 20 on the drug charge.
