Broken Windshield Leads to Drug Bust in Cheyenne
A 21-year-old Cheyenne woman is facing felony charges after a traffic stop reportedly led to the discovery of marijuana and fentanyl.
According to a booking sheet, Olivia Jean Garrido was arrested around 1 p.m. on July 4 after a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper stopped the Jeep she was riding in near the intersection of House Avenue and East 21st Street for having a broken windshield.
The trooper said the driver could not provide any registration and Garrido, who lied about her identity, stated she had recently purchased the Jeep.
While the trooper was filling out the paperwork for the stop, he had a Laramie County Sheriff's Office K-9 Team respond to run a free air sniff around the Jeep and the dog alerted to the presence of drugs.
A subsequent search of the Jeep led to the discovery of a felony amount of suspected marijuana in a black duffel bag, scales, suspected illegal narcotic packaging, and several suspected fentanyl pills under the passenger seat.
Because Garrido stated the Jeep was hers, she was charged with two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance, felony manufacture or delivery, and interference with a peace officer.
Garrido was also found to have a warrant out of Laramie County for failure to pay on an original charge of failure to have a driver's license.
Garrido is currently being held in the Laramie County Detention Center on a $5,000 cash bond awaiting a July 13 preliminary hearing.
