Cheyenne Man Arrested With Cocaine After ‘Tagging’ Hotel
A 19-year-old Cheyenne man is facing felony drug charges after police say they caught him with 14 baggies of cocaine.
According to an affidavit, police were called to the Central Plaza Hotel around 1 a.m. on May 22 after the front clerk reported seeing a man in a dark hoodie spray paint the wall in the alley and ride off on a skateboard.
Police checked the surrounding area and observed the word "Geekeo" in fresh, white spray paint on the wall. The man, later identified as Garrett Rialon, was located in the city parking garage a few blocks away.
Police say Rialon had a white spray can and white paint on his black hoodie. He also had 10.6 grams of cocaine on him.
Rialon was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor property destruction. He could face up to 27-and-a-half years in prison if convicted.
Rialon is currently being held in the Laramie County jail on a $3,000 cash bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 31 at 10:30 a.m.
