A speeding stop led to the arrests of two men and the seizure of 115 pounds of high-grade marijuana on Interstate 80 just outside Evanston, the Wyoming Highway Patrol says.
WHP Sgt. Steven Townsend said the suspects a 35-year-old Margate, Fla., man and a 24-year-old Cithonia, Ga., man were being held Tuesday in the Uinta (Wyo.) County jail. They had been booked on felony charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance.
Along with the marijuana, with an estimated street value of $694,400, WHP troopers seized more than $3,000 in cash.
