Newly trained Wyoming Highway Patrol K-9 helped seize over 1300 fentanyl pills, three pounds of methamphetamine

    A Wyoming Highway Patrol (WHP) K-9 Handler was called to assist Special Agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation Thursday evening near Evanston.

    The Special Agents had contacted an individual at a gas station and became suspicious of criminal activity.

    The WHP Trooper arrived and deployed his K-9 partner. The handler observed a positive, trained final response to the odor of drugs inside the vehicle.


    A vehicle search resulted in the trooper seizing 1,349 M30 fentanyl pills, 3.89 pounds of methamphetamine, and a pistol.

    The arrested subject was a convicted felon and was not allowed to have firearms. Agents believe these drugs were destined for communities within Wyoming.

    This case marks the first significant fentanyl seizure since the WHP K-9 teams were trained and certified on fentanyl two weeks ago.
