Two Facing Felony Drug Charges After Traffic Stop Near Cheyenne
Two Indiana men are facing felony drug charges after a Wyoming trooper found 21 pounds of suspected marijuana in their rental car.
Court records say 53-year-old Troy R. Mann and 23-year-old Michael A. Sims were pulled over for a lane use violation on Interstate 80 west of Cheyenne on Oct. 10.
The traffic stop led to a search of the car and two mid-sized plastic tubs containing vacuum sealed bags of suspected marijuana were found in the trunk. A marijuana vape pen and a vial of THC oil were also located in the center console.
Once at the jail, Sims reportedly advised of a controlled substance hidden near his genitalia. A plastic container with 5.5 grams of suspected ecstasy was found, according to the affidavit.
Mann and Sims were charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and felony possession of marijuana. Sims was also charged with felony possession of MDMA.
The men are currently being held in the Laramie County jail on $10,000 cash bonds. Their preliminary hearings are scheduled for Oct. 18 at 3 p.m.
