Dispatch: Multiple Drug Arrests; Damage to Wendy's Drive-Thru

Here’s Thursday's law enforcement recap from around the county. All calls took place on January 13th and early January 14. All persons cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. *Gillette Police Department* Rebecca Edwards, 22, Gillette, on Contempt of court charges. Michael Sherer, 27. Gillette, arrested on domestic violence charges. After an argument began between he and a friend he was staying with, Sherer allegedly started choking the other man. When a breath test was administered, it tested positive for alcohol, which was a bond violation for Mr. Sherer. He also called his former girlfriend, another bond violation. Two trucks caused damage to area businesses yesterday and fled the scene. GPD caught up with a semi driver who broke off part of a tree while making a U-Turn at City West in Gillette. A second driver a few hours later took his rental truck through the Wendy's drive-thru, removing part of the building's roof, which fell on top of a Ford Taurus behind him in line. $3000 in damage was caused to the Wendy's and the vehicles. He was issued citations. A 45 year old Gillette woman claims her debit card was stolen and used five times on January 12th and 13th. The charges totaled over $2300. The suspect has not been caught. Wyoming Unemployment Insurance filed a report that a 41 year old man had stolen over $5000 in unemployment funds in 2009. The report has been forwarded to the county attorney. *Campbell County Sheriff's Office* Mario Arguello, 25, Gillette, was charged as a Fugitive from Justice. However this charge stems from a probation violation in the state of Georgia. Arguello is already incarcerated in the Campbell County Jail. A 44 year old male was stopped for a traffic violation and K9 units discovered Methamphetamine in the vehicle. The driver was arrested for Driving While Under Suspension, Possession of Controlled Susbstance, Possession with Intent to Deliver. Further details have been withheld pending an ongoing investigation. Anthony Hackett, 23, Gillette, was a passenger with two other men when the Jeep he was in was stopped for failure to use a turn signal. A K9 unit discovered drugs had been present in the vehicle. The 29 year old driver was cited for smoking pot. Mr. Hackett had an outstanding warrant and was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance (he had 2 grams of marijuana.) Ralph Pettus, 46, Gillette, arrested for Contempt of Court. Jason Robinson, 24, Billings, arrested for Contempt of Court. Ashley Wells, 26, Moorcroft, was arrested for Bond Revocation.
