More than 300 pounds of weed seized by WHP in local 4 day operation

The Wyoming Highway Patrol recently conducted an agency K-9 deployment in Laramie County July 14th though the 17th. WHP K-9 teams and additional Troopers from across the state came to Cheyenne for updated training and then hit the road for 24 hour patrols during the four day deployment. The Troopers and K-9's stayed busy during the detail as multiple arrests and drug seizures were made. By the time the deployment was over, 25 drug related felony charges and 26 drug related misdemeanor charges were filed. Approximately 313 pounds of marijuana, approx. one ounce of methamphetamine, approx. three-quarters of one ounce of heroin as well as a small amount of ecstasy and prescription medications (such as oxycodone) were also interdicted during the deployment. The criminal interdictions were a result of 400 highway safety related traffic stops that resulted in 357 warnings and 73 other citations including nine seat belt and eight child seat tickets. *h/t WHP* #shortgo #news
