A Laramie County Circuit Court judge on Wednesday set bond at $10,000 cash each for the two men charged in Monday's marijuana bust on Interstate 80 in Cheyenne.

According to arrest records, 59-year-old Brooklyn, New York resident Earnest J. Johnnie and 48-year-old Philadelphia, Pennsylvania resident Gary E. Young were stopped near the I-80/I-25 interchange after a Laramie County Sheriff's deputy saw Johnnie make two lane violations.

Johnnie, who was driving a rental car, reportedly told the deputy that he was driving home to New York.

While the deputy was completing routine paperwork, a Wyoming Highway Patrol K-9 handler arrived and deployed his dog, who alerted on the car.

A probable cause search of the car revealed approximately 65 pounds of suspected marijuana in the trunk.
