On July 20, 2020, as a result of the ongoing investigation in the Big Springs area, law enforcement arrested Jason Korte on suspicion of: possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, illegal extraction of marijuana concentrate using an inherently dangerous substance, arson, manufacture and possession of explosives, and other charges. Nederland Police will continue to work with the Boulder County District Attorney’s office during the prosecution of these charges. The safety of the Nederland community has been, and will remain, our top priority. The NPD appreciates the public’s patience during the investigation. Mr. Korte is innocent unless and until he is proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
