All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Chancelor Foutz, 20, of Fremont County is facing one count of possession with intent to deliver marijuana.
On May 25th, 2019 a Riverton Police Officer pulled over a car with five occupants on South Federal Boulevard for a broken tail light.
According to court documents, the officer observed an odor of burnt marijuana emitting from the open driver side window. The officer asked each occupant if they had anything illegal on their person. Foutz allegedly said, “I have two pipes on me.”
The officer searched the vehicle finding a drawstring backpack containing twelve small baggies of marijuana. Foutz allegedly admitted the backpack belonged to him. When questioned by the officer about dealing marijuana Foutz allegedly advised the officer he has been dealing for over a month.
On June 4th, 2019 Foutz waived his preliminary hearing so the case is being transferred to District Court.
Foutz is being charged with:
- One count possession with intent to deliver marijuana (felony) has a maximum penalty of imprisonment of not more than 10 years and/or a fine of not more than $10,000 or both.
