Sen. Mark Udall’s Son Arrested For Breaking Into Cars, Heroin Possession

Sen. Mark Udall’s (D-CO) son was arrested Wednesday after police say he broke into three cars and was found with heroin in his pocket, the Boulder Daily Camera reported.

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.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
