Laramie County Sheriff: Detective Disrupted ‘Substantial Threat’
A Laramie County Sheriff's Office Detective assigned to work with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration Drug Task Force was recently recognized for submitting the most case referrals to the United States Attorney's Office for prosecution in 2022.
That's according to a post on the LCSO Facebook page. According to the post:
''In 2022, this Detective investigated a fentanyl distribution conspiracy and identified several local distributors and their source of supply in Colorado. It was estimated that the drug distributors identified in this investigation were responsible for the distribution of approximately 60,000 fentanyl pills between Colorado, Cheyenne, and other areas of Wyoming.''
The post goes on to credit the detective with disrupting a "substantial threat" to Wyoming in general and especially to Cheyenne. For his work, he was recently recognized by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Wyoming.
His name and face were withheld in the post to protect his identity. The name under the photo in our article is a photo credit for the person who took the photo.
The post goes on to say that Sheriff Kozak has assigned an additional detective to the DEA to help battle the local drug problem.
