On the morning of March 3, law enforcement officers from the Delta Police Department, Delta County Sheriff's Office and the Colorado Department of Corrections (Parole) conducted a home visit at the residence of Alexander Fultz, 22, at 208 E. 5th Street in the City of Delta. During the visit and subsequent investigation, a handgun, ammunition, suspected heroin, suspected marijuana, explosive components and drug paraphernalia were located inside the residence. Fultz was transported to the Delta County Jail where he was placed on a parole hold. Seth Brave, 21, who was also at the residence, was arrested on two outstanding/active warrants.
The Grand Junction Police Department bomb squad responded to the residence and took possession of the explosive component. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was also contacted in regards to the items located. This case is still under investigation and charges are pending.

The property is owned by Bowie Resources, LLC, and was formerly used as a coal load-out site.
