Two Facing Felony Pot Charges After Traffic Stop Near Cheyenne
An Ohio pair is facing felony drug charges after a Wyoming trooper found roughly 13 pounds of marijuana in their rental car.
According to an affidavit, 25-year-old Adalia Jackson and 23-year-old Stefan Willis were pulled over for tailgating on Interstate 80 west of Cheyenne on May 11.
The traffic stop led to a search of the car and three gift-wrapped packages containing 6036.9 grams of marijuana were found in a suitcase in the trunk.
Willis reportedly told the trooper that he was traveling back home to Akron after being in Ukiah, California.
Jackson and Willis were arrested and charged with felony possession of marijuana. If convicted, they could each face up to five years in prison.
The two are currently being held in the Laramie County jail on $10,000 cash bonds. Their preliminary hearings are scheduled for May 22 at 9 a.m.
