The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation began working the case on these three individuals in December 2017. On various occasions, the three each arranged to sell and sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant. During at least one of those times that methamphetamine was sold, a 2-year-old was present around the transaction.
Court documents were not specific as to how the arrest of all three took place, however, documents do note they were taken into custody in April 2019.
On May 3rd, Linn waived her preliminary hearing. Her case will be transferred to District Court at a later date for further proceedings and arraignment.
Jeffrey and Tajia Cleveland are awaiting trial.
All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
