Deferred sentence in $100,000 pot bust

SUNDANCE (WNE) — One of two California residents who faced felony charges of possession with intent to deliver after THC concentrate with an estimated street value of $100,000 was discovered in their vehicle during a traffic stop has been given a deferred sentence.

On November 29, 2020, a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper conducted a traffic stop on a pickup traveling eastbound on I-90 at a high rate of speed. When the trooper approached the vehicle, he allegedly smelled an overwhelming odor of perfume even through his cloth face mask.

He asked the driver, Nathaniel Freeman, to come to his patrol vehicle to complete some paperwork.

The trooper returned to the vehicle and reports that the perfume odor had dissipated and he could smell a very strong odor of raw marijuana.

A probable cause search allegedly revealed marijuana shake throughout the vehicle, a measurable bud of marijuana in the cup holder, three large vacuum-sealed packages of what appeared to be concentrated THC.

The total weight of the packages was found to be 6.6 lbs. According to the trooper’s report, THC concentrates are sold in small packages, indicating “potentially thousands of doses” with a street value in excess of $100,000.

Freeman pled guilty to one felony count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Judge Thomas W. Rumpke sentenced him to between three and five years of incarceration and a $10,000 fine. Both parts of the sentence were suspended pending successful completion of three years of supervised probation.
