Couple Arrested With 100 Pounds Of Pot In Wyoming
Two people are facing felony drug charges after sheriff's deputies found 100 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of their vehicle, according to a spokesman for the Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office.
Dick Blust says a patrol deputy and his K9 partner made a traffic stop early Tuesday on Interstate 80 near Wamsutter. The driver of the vehicle was identified as 27-year-old Ashley Marie Clark of Bluefield, West Virginia.
The passenger in the vehicle was 29-year-old Scott Schatek of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey. Blust says the K9 alerted to the presence of drugs, leading to a search of the vehicle that turned up 100 pounds of marijuana in vacuum-sealed bags.
Schatek and Clark are both charged with possession with intent to deliver, conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, and felony possession with intent to deliver.
Circuit Judge John Prokos set Schatek's bond at $30,000 and Clark's at $15,000. At last report, both were still being held in the Sweetwater County jail.
