Highway Patrol Traffic Stop Leads To Pot Bust
The Wyoming Highway Patrol arrested two California men today after a traffic stop west of Cheyenne resulted in the discovery of about 57 pounds of marijuana in their car, according to a news release.
A trooper stopped the car at mile post 351 on Interstate 80 at 10:15 a.m. for traveling 85 mph in a 75 mph zone, according to the news release from Patrol Sgt. David Wagener.
While speaking to the two men, the trooper smelled the odor of raw marijuana. The trooper's partner, WHP K-9 "Hunter," also smelled the marijuana, which prompted a search of the car.
The troopers and agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation discovered the drug.
Talon Williams, 21, and Morek Robbins, 22, from Hoopa, Calif., were taken to the Laramie County Detention Center. Hoopa is in Humboldt County in northern California. The men are currently charged with felony possession of marijuana and felony possession with intent to deliver.
The DCI is investigating the case.
