Wyoming Drug Bust

Wyoming Drug Bust
California man faces federal charges after Wyoming pot bust
The Associated Press - April 20, 2017

CASPER, Wyo. - A northern California man faces a federal drug charge after officers found more than 340 pounds of marijuana in a rental truck in northeastern Wyoming.

Court records say the possession with intent to distribute charge was filed against 57-year-old Cher Yang of Macdoel, California, last week. There is a warrant for his arrest.

KTWO-AM reports the case began on Jan. 22 when a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper contacted Yang at a truck stop in Sundance. A search of the truck turned up 342 pounds (155 kilograms) of marijuana in vacuum sealed packages in moving boxes.

Court records say Yang told investigators he was being paid $20,000 to take the truck to St. Paul, Minnesota.

Crook County jail administrator Sgt. Darren Horn said Thursday that Yang was initially charged in state court and posted a $50,000 bond on March 6.
