According to a Highway Patrol release, Gary Hanshaw, 57, and Robert Watson, 60, both from Penn Valley, California, were taken into custody when a haul of more than 21 pounds of marijuana was discovered in their vehicle.

Trooper contact with the men began just after noon when a trooper saw a vehicle parked behind a state property storage building at the interchange of US 189 and Interstate 80.

The patrol narrative says that the men were not in the vehicle when the trooper approached and, initially, neither man admitted to being the driver of the vehicle.

Hanshaw eventually admitted to being the driver, and because it appeared to the trooper that both men were under the influence of marijuana, Hanshaw was arrested for driving under the influence.

The trooper found a user amount of marijuana on Hanshaw, and a search of the vehicle discovered 21 vacuum sealed bags of marijuana and a vacuum sealed bag of kief, a concentrated marijuana powder.

Approximately 1,000 dollars in cash was also discovered and seized.

Both men were charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Wyoming DCI was brought into the investigation. The street value of the marijuana is estimated at around 127,000 dollars, and 1,500 dollars for the kief.
