On August 16th, 21-year-old Fremont County woman Callie Hunsberger was arrested by the Lander Police Department for possession of a controlled substance.
According to court documents, LPD officers and Fremont County Sheriff’s deputies received a call about a possible stolen vehicle heading toward the Wind River Indian Reservation. The reporting party also said that the person driving the vehicle, Hunsberger, had a gun.
A Sheriff’s Deputy located the vehicle a short time later, just outside of Lander and pulled it over. Hunsberger confirmed she was not the owner of the vehicle, but “knew who the owner was.” She claimed she had dropped the reporting party off because the two had been “having problems.” Registration of the vehicle was in the reporting party’s mother’s name. The mother said that her son had permission to use the vehicle, but not Hunsberger.
Sheriff’s conducted a search of the vehicle, in which they found two plastic bags of marijuana, a plastic bag of methamphetamine, a propane torch and four cell phones. There was also a purse containing $980 cash.
A Sheriff’s deputy weighed the drugs, finding 21.6 grams of methamphetamine and 1.2 grams of marijuana. The methamphetamine has an estimated worth of $1,500.
The defendant waived her preliminary hearing in late September and consented to the transfer to District Court.
The amount of methamphetamine found is considered felony possession. If convicted, this felony is punishable by imprisonment for up to 5 years and a fine of up to $5,000. The amount of marijuana found is a misdemeanor. If convicted, it is punishable by imprisonment of up to 1 year and a fine of up to $1,000. Unauthorized use of a vehicle is punishable by imprisonment of up to 1 year and a fine of up to $1,000.
All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
