Drug Warrant Sweep Nets Several Meth Suspects
A Sweetwater County warrants sweep last week resulted in the arrest of six people, according to Sheriff Mike Lowell.
Five of the six people arrested are facing charges of delivery or felony possession of methamphetamine. The following people were arrested according to the sheriff:
Stephen Paul Workman, 55, of Reliance, who is charged with five separate counts of delivery of methamphetamine;
Brandon Ray Isaacson, 34, of Rock Springs, who is charged with probation violation on an original charge of felony-grade possession of methamphetamine;
John Adam Kotusky, 26, of Green River, who is charged with three counts of conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine and/or heroin;
Luis Javier Hernandez, 28, of Utah, who is charged with delivery of methamphetamine;
Jeremy Thomas Hall, 21, of Green River, who is charged with three counts of delivery of methamphetamine and/or heroin and three counts of conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine and/or heroin;
Shadee Lee Gardner, 25, of Green River, who is charged with interference with a peace officer and other traffic offenses.
An undisclosed amount of methamphetamine was also seized during the operation.
In Wyoming, delivery of a controlled substance and conspiracy (or attempt) to deliver a controlled substance both carry maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a $25,000 fine or both.
