This undated photo provided by the Multnomah County Sheriff's office shows Jason Blomgren. Federal supervision officers have cited concerns that Blomgren, who pleaded guilty last year to conspiring to impede federal employees from carrying out their work at Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, has been using opiates, which would be a violation of his release conditions, based on a positive result for morphine on a May, 2017, urinalysis test. Blomgren's defense lawyer and investigator argue, based on an outside expert's opinion and review of the test results, that eating an everything bagel with poppy seeds for breakfast every day could not be ruled out as the source of the morphine results.
