(Fremont County, WY) – 43-year-old Fremont County man Jason Eugene Miller faces 3 felony charges for drug possession with intent to deliver.
These charges include:
- Possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, a felony punishable by imprisonment of up to 20 years, a fine of up to $25,000, or both.
- Possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, a felony punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.
- Possession of THC with intent to deliver, a felony punishable by imprisonment of up to 10 years, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.
On the morning of March 12, 2021, Fremont County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a Riverton business parking lot, where BIA deputies had reportedly discovered Jason Miller sleeping in the driver’s seat of a truck that was still “in drive.”
Responding officers asked Miller to step out of the vehicle, and a “strong odor of marijuana” was detected coming from the truck.
While Miller was placed in investigative detention, K-9 officer Ricky and his handler conducted an “open air sniff,” and reportedly discovered: a partially smoked marijuana joint, a container of suspected marijuana, 14 empty THC wax containers, a large garbage bag filled with “marijuana particles,” a small straw “commonly used to snort narcotics,” a large sum of money in cash (over $1,000), and hotel room key.
After contacting the hotel, law enforcement searched Miller’s room where they also found: “approximately 13 pounds of suspected marijuana, 20 grams of suspected cocaine, 30 grams of suspected psychedelic mushrooms, approximately 33 ‘hits’ of suspected lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), over 123 containers of concentrated THC, edibles, scales, baggies, currency, and ledgers documenting money transactions.”
The suspected marijuana and cocaine were later tested presumptive positive using a Narcotics Identification Kit (NIK) and TruNarc test.
Upon finding enough probable cause at the preliminary hearing, the case was transferred to District Court, with an arraignment date to be determined as of this writing.
