Colorado Homeless Man Smoked Weed with 7-Year-Old, Used Meth, and Locked Him in Chicken Coop

28-year-old homeless man Kristopher Lockit smoked marijuana with 7-year-old Ashton Laymon of Fountain, used meth in front of him, and then locked him in a chicken coop according to an arrest affidavit from the Fountain Police Department.

According to a report from KDVR News:

The affidavit reveals that Lockit met Ashton a week prior to Ashton’s disappearance, across the street from a 7-11 on Santa Fe Avenue. He would see Ashton from time to time and eventually talk to him outside a thrift store called Connie’s Cupboard. Lockit would refer to Ashton as his “little homie,” and eventually asked him if he wanted to go on a hike, to which Ashton agreed.

Lockit called another man, Kristopher Davidson, for a ride, and both Lockit and Ashton got in the car. It was in the car that Lockit and Davidson began smoking marijuana, eventually sharing it with Ashton.

The three drove to Ashton’s home so he could ask his mother for permission to stay with friends, and when she said no, Ashton walked back to the car and told them he did in fact have permission, and once again left with them.

Later in the night, the 7-year-old and the two men stayed in a shed that had been set up as a chicken coop and 28-year-old Lockit told the boy he couldn’t leave and even put a lock on the door at one point.
