Multiple controlled substances, distribution paraphernalia seized at Riverton residence

(Riverton, WY) – 57-year-old Sandy Napier and 29-year-old Billy Napier, each face various drug possession charges and possible felonies, after reportedly being found to have multiple controlled substances and distribution paraphernalia at their shared residence in Riverton.

An ongoing investigation led to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (WDCI) executing a search warrant of the Napier’s home, where agents were reported to have found methamphetamine, heroin, LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, and marijuana, as well as “plastic baggies and scales commonly used for distribution of controlled substances.”

Sandy faces two felony charges for delivery of methamphetamine and possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, as well as misdemeanor charges for possession of heroin, LSD, psilocybin mushrooms and marijuana.

Billy faces a felony charge for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, as well misdemeanor charges for possession of heroin and marijuana.

Sufficient probable cause was found at both party’s September 22nd preliminary hearings, and the cases now move on to District Court, with a shared arraignment date of October 26th.

On Thursday, July 29th, a WDCI agent made contact with confidential informant, who informed him that they could “purchase methamphetamine from Sandy Napier or Billy Napier at their residence located in Riverton.”

Later that day, the informant was able to make contact with Sandy Napier, and they were reportedly able to purchase approximately 1.9 grams of what was later tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine.

On Friday, September 10th, WDCI agents executed a search warrant of the residence.

Upon searching Sandy Napier’s bedroom, agents reportedly seized: “over three and half ounces of suspected methamphetamine, one gram of suspected heroin, two hits of suspected LSD, a bag of suspected psilocybin mushrooms, misdemeanor amounts of mushrooms/marijuana, prescription pills which were not in prescription bottles, multiple firearms (one of which had a homemade suppressor), cash, plastic baggies used for distribution, and observed multiple scales used for weighing controlled substances.”

Upon searching Billy Napier’s downstairs living quarters, agents reportedly seized: “over six and half grams of suspected methamphetamine, approximately two and half grams of suspected heroin, misdemeanor amounts of marijuana, cash, an SKS rifle and bulletproof vest, a small marijuana grow in the basement,” as well as the scales and plastic baggies.

It was also noted in the report that Billy is prohibited from possessing firearms.

The seized methamphetamine, heroin, and marijuana all later tested presumptive positive, using both TruNarc and NIK testing kits.

WDCI also conducted interviews with both Sandy and Billy that same day, where Sandy reportedly informed agents that “she gets methamphetamine from more than one person, didn’t know how much methamphetamine was in her bedroom, and that she doesn’t sell methamphetamine.”

During Billy’s interview, he reportedly “told agents he had heroin in his room,” and also “advised he sells methamphetamine.”

Both of the Napier’s arraignment dates were set for October 26th.

The maximum penalty for a delivery of methamphetamine felony charge is 20 years imprisonment and a $25,000 fine.

The maximum penalty for a possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine felony charge is 20 years imprisonment and a $25,000 fine.

The maximum penalty for the possession of heroin, LSD, psilocybin mushroom and marijuana misdemeanor charges is one year imprisonment and a $1,000 fine for each charge.

County 10 will provide more information on the case as it progresses, which can be found here for Sandy, and here for Billy.
