Cheyenne Drug Bust Leads to 33-Month Sentence for South Dakotan
U.S. District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson on Jan. 12 sentenced 31-year-old Spearfish, South Dakota resident Alyssa Bury to 33 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
According to court documents, police on Oct. 21, 2021, were called to do a welfare check on a woman who was suspected to be on drugs and found Bury hiding in the back of a truck parked in an alley.
They say Bury couldn't explain how she got there.
Another officer was called to check out Bury’s car, and a subsequent search led to the discovery of methamphetamine, a digital scale, several unused plastic baggies, and other controlled substances.
