Teen pleads guilty following Castle Rock chemical investigation

One of two Castle Rock 16-year-old boys who were charged in the wake of a federally-assisted chemical investigation where explosive materials were found inside a Plum Creek neighborhood home has been sentenced to two years in the Department of Youth Corrections.

The teen pleaded guilty in Douglas County's juvenile court to one count of possession of an explosive or incendiary device, a Class 4 felony, and one count of possession of a handgun by a juvenile, a Class 2 misdemeanor, according to the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office. The News-Press is not identifying the teen because he is under 18 and was prosecuted in juvenile court.

A spokeswoman for the district attorney said the office will not release more information while there is a co-defendant still moving through the court system.

The investigation was launched in the early morning hours of Oct. 31, after the unrelated arrests of the two boys for suspicious behavior. Officers then discovered suspicious chemicals inside one boy's home while alerting their parents of the arrest.

Castle Rock Fire and Rescue, the Douglas County bomb squad, the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives all aided the investigation, during which more than 30 homes were evacuated.

Authorities discovered chemicals stored in a variety of containers throughout the home that day and by Monday evening safely detonated two explosive materials found inside.

The home, which had been condemned, was cleared of all dangerous chemicals nearly a month later on Nov. 23.

The teens were charged in early November. Bond was set at $1 million.

The second teen was charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a child and possession of a handgun. Bond was set at $50,000.,244787
