2 Arrested After Drugs Found During Traffic Stop
MOORCROFT, Wyo. (AP) — A traffic stop in northeast Wyoming has resulted in two arrests.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the case involved a U-Haul truck that was stopped for unsafe driving Sunday night on Interstate 90 west of Moorcroft. With the help of a canine, troopers found 14 pounds of drugs inside a television set in the truck.
Troopers initially said Tuesday that the drug was marijuana but later said it was methamphetamine.
Troopers say the truck was carrying household furnishings from California to the St. Paul, Minn., area.
A 50-year-old man and a 29-year-old female were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. They weren’t identified, but troopers say one is a Mexico resident and the other lives in San Jose, Calif.
