Casper Police Arrest 3 for Meth, Child Endangerment
Three people were arrested over the weekend after Casper police officers allegedly found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in a motel room where seven children were present.
Brytani Hanley, 29, was booked into jail on recommended charges of meth possession and seven counts of child endangerment by methamphetamine. Arrested on the same charges were 28-year-old Amanda Cloutier and 37-year-old Demetrian Grimes.
All three will likely make their initial appearances in Natrona County Circuit Court at 2 p.m. Monday.
The affidavit filed in reference to Hanley states that officers were called to the Motel 6 at 1150 Wilkins Circle shortly before 12:30 p.m. Friday after Grimes's sister called police and reported that Grimes was in a motel room using "crack and cocaine."
Officers arrived and found Hanley, Cloutier and Grimes another woman and seven children, one of them less than seven months old.
In the bathroom, an officer allegedly found three meth pipes and methamphetamine in plain view. After a search warrant was granted, additional methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia were found.
The Wyoming Department of Family Services was asked to respond to the motel room. Hanley and Cloutier allegedly gave urine samples which tested presumptively positive for methamphetamine.
Grimes told officers that he had not smoked methamphetamine, saying only that he had used marijuana several days prior.
Cloutier allegedly admitted to having smoked meth that morning with both Hanley and Grimes. Hanley reportedly told police the same thing.
All seven children were initially taken into protective custody before they were placed with the fourth adult who had been in the motel room; she did not test positive for methamphetamine.
The Casper Police Department on Monday could not provide mugshots for Cloutier and Hanley.
