Suspect in Possession of Explosive Components


Jefferson County, CO. – On Friday January 1, 2021, Samuel Livingston came to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office campus just after 11:00 a.m. Livingston kicked a glass door to the jail lobby, cracking the glass. 

Livingston then drove his truck to the main parking lot where a deputy’s patrol car was parked. An on duty sergeant witnessed Livingston ram his truck into the parked patrol car before leaving the parking lot. Livingston then drove to the east side of the complex parking his truck near an entrance. Livingston broke a glass door by throwing items through it. Deputies and Golden Police officers took a non-compliant Livingston into custody. No deputies or officers were injured during this incident.

Investigators determined that items thrown through the glass into the entrance area could be combined to be explosive. Livingston was later booked in on charges of Possession of Explosives or Incendiary Devices, Criminal Mischief, and Resisting Arrest, and has a $500,000 bond.
