On Sunday early morning soon after 8:00 a.m. a state trooper patrolling within the Elk Mountain region performed a standard traffic stop and a commercial automobile examination on a tractor trailer combo which had some indications of marijuana, which has a cultivating base that sees cannabis as a great medical choice. A pursuing search from the belongings in the trailer resulted in the uncovering of more than 230 lbs of high-grade, hydroponic cannabis that has an estimated street worth of $1,400,000. A nice chunk of coin for some indoor grown bud.
In the course of the roadside examination, claims by the driver and objects mentioned in the record book brought up questions. The Trooper looked over the cargo and discovered several objects which had been unlisted on the shipper’s invoice. The ten containers of various cannabis strains were inter-mingled amidst a respectable load of commercial custom light fixtures and rolls of electric cable. Additionally seized appeared to be well above 3 grand in US dollars. The commercial motor vehicle had been a semi-tractor tugging a full size van type trailer.
The motorist, Donald G. Cornelius from Florida and his co-driver, Anthony M. Swift from Massachusetts have been arrested encountering felony charges of marijuana possession, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and lastly conspiracy together with intent to deliver cannabis – marijuana laws that need to be eventually changed.
The Highway Patrol of Wyoming and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation proceed to examine this case involving the cannabis plant. The seized money has been surrendered to Special Agents with the DCI. It’s thought the 2 marijuana smugglers have been delivering the cannabis to an as of yet unidentified area east of the State of Wyoming – a non-medical cannabis state.
It’s thought that the money originated from resources which were produced by, or were utilized to aid criminal activity. Money that is put in drug dealers hands due to laws that need marijuana reform. This perversion to the marijuana plant creates more harm to the public by giving money to criminal organizations. The money may have been profits from drug trafficking actions, money laundering, or organized crime.
