The Wyoming Highway Patrol recently put out a news release stating that 2 pounds of methamphetamine had been seized during a traffic stop on October 13.

This took place 23 miles south of Gillette, Wyoming, on Highway 50 when a trooper pulled over Dickenson, South Dakota resident Jerry Dawson for going 92 mph in a 70 mph zone.

While speaking with the passenger, Bobby Dickerson from Bakersfield, California, the trooper could smell burnt marijuana coming from inside the vehicle and found a marijuana bud on the passenger seat.

This prompted a search of the car, a 2020 Chrysler 300, in which troopers found the 2 pounds of methamphetamine in the trunk.

The passenger began to flee on foot from the traffic stop once the discovery was made, and was later apprehended in a field north of the stopped location.

Both the driver and passenger were arrested and taken to the Campbell County Detention Center. They have been charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, felony possession of a controlled substance, and felony possession with intent to deliver.

The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) is assisting with the investigation.
