A 65-year-old Cheyenne man is facing a felony drug possession charge following a traffic stop in south central Cheyenne.

According to a booking sheet, a police officer stopped Charles Richard Bennett near the intersection of Deming Drive and West 9th Street shortly before 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 30, for obscured registration.

The officer says the plastic cover on Bennett's rear license plate was so darkly tinted and dirty, that she had to get out of her vehicle and get within three feet of his Corvette to read the plate.

The officer deployed her K-9 partner, who alerted on Bennett's car, and a small plastic jewelry bag containing approximately 0.47 grams of suspected marijuana and a suspected THC vape pen cartridge were found behind the electronic radio screen.

Bennett also reportedly had three small plastic jewelry bags containing approximately 5.89 grams of suspected methamphetamine on him.

Bennett was arrested and booked into the Laramie County Detention Center for felony possession of methamphetamine, misdemeanor possession of marijuana, and display of license plates.

He's scheduled to make his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court on Thursday, Feb. 1, at 2 p.m.
