During a Wyoming Highway Patrol K-9 deployment exercise on Interstate 80 in Laramie County in August of this year Troopers arrested two individuals, an adult male driver and adult male passenger, who were found to be transporting approximately 5 pounds of marijuana.

Patrol spokesman Sgt. Stephen Townsend says the marijuana was being transported from California to an unknown location in North Carolina. Each was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

The driver and passenger both posted bond and were allowed to leave the State. Townsend says when the driver reappeared for his court date he was arrested on a probation violation. The passenger, who it was later discovered used a false name and date of birth, has failed to appear for his scheduled court appearance.

Townsend says just last week with assistance from the Laramie County District Attorney’s Office the true identity of the second individual has been discovered and Troopers have obtained arrest warrants for perjury and identity theft. It has also been determined that the individual has committed a multitude of crimes giving false names and identity information which belong to real people.

Townsend says currently the US Marshals Service is also looking for this individual as well. The individuals whereabouts is unknown and the case remains under investigation at this time.
