Residents in Eldorado Springs, Colo. called police to report they saw Jed Udall, 26, breaking and entering into cars, according to Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle. He said deputies also found heroin in one of Udall's pockets.

Udall was arrested on suspicion of four counts of trespassing and a single count of possession of a controlled substance, according to the newspaper, and later released.

"Maggie and I are deeply distressed to learn of our son's arrest," Sen. 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."

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
