Father and Son Charged with Making Meth in Million Dollar Home

This is the million dollar Tuscany style mansion where father and son, Brian and Martin Marshall are accused of making methamphetamine.
Brian, who's 54 and son Martin who's 19, each face two felony counts... one for possessing the materials to make methamphetamine... and a second for manufacturing meth in the home.
Neither they nor their attorneys would talk to us outside the hearing room, but last month, father, Brian Marshall told me meth was never made in the villa at 2350 Orchard Valley Road.
This past weekend, the pair was arrested just a half mile away from the mansion at their other home at 8015 Orchard Path.
Colorado Springs police tell us they had probable cause to do a search after preliminary testing turned up meth residue at the second home as well.
It now has a sign posted, saying no one's allowed inside except those cleaning or testing the home.
Neighbors say they're not surprised by the new developments. In fact, they're relieved charges have been filed.
One neighbor told us, "It was just a matter of time you know. We definitely saw it coming."
This man who wants to remain anonymous says he's known the Marshalls for several years.
He says even at the age of 11, Martin was known as a troublemaker.
He goes on to say, "They always would have excuses for it... saying they wanted to raise him in a village environment... that everybody should be there you know, to help each others' kids out."
Now, Martin faces other charges in addition to the most recent ones.
In January he was arrested for selling heroin to a police informant and for having drug paraphernelia with traces of meth.
As for the father, Brian, he also faces civil charges related to the sale of the mansion.
He's accused of fraud, breach of contract, and failure to disclose the presence of meth in the home in real estate documents, which is required by Colorado law.
The family who bought this five bedroom, five bath home from Brian in July... filed a lawsuit against him...trying to get their money back and rescind the sale of the house.
After finding out about the drug allegations, the new family hired an expert to test the home... finding it was so contaminated they had to move out.
Brian and Martin are now free on bond and are due back in court next month.
I'm told Brian is still employed by Lockheed Martin and is allowed onto the grounds of Schriever Air Force Base where he works.
But the defense contractor says it notified the government of the charges against him and is now assessing his security clearance status.
In the meantime, neighbors say they're saddened that Martin ... once the little boy down the street has turned into an accused crimnal.
The neighbor says, "You compare him to this person that you used to know and the person he is now. He's a completely different person you know. He's a monster."
Colorado Springs police say additional charges are pending, based on evidence seized in a search warrant executed last Friday.
