A woman who Cheyenne police reportedly caught with drugs in her car has been sentenced to federal prison, the United States Attorney's Office announced late Friday afternoon.

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.

The crime was investigated by Cheyenne police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.

They may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but make no bones about it, police dogs play a vital role in the fight against crime.

In many situations, they're the first ones to put their lives on the line to protect their human partners, proving that not all heroes wear capes, some wear fur coats.
