  • Delivery of methamphetamine
  • Possession of Fentanyl with intent to deliver
  • Conspiracy to deliver Fentanyl
  • Possession of heroin with intent to deliver
  • Possession of carfentanil (3rd or subsequent, enhanced penalty)
  • Possession of methamphetamine (3rd or subsequent, enhanced penalty)
  • Possession of Fentanyl (3rd or subsequent, enhanced penalty)

The last three charges are enhanced penalty due to two previous ‘possession of controlled substance methamphetamine’ charges that Poole was convicted of on November 5th, 2020, and May 19th, 2021.

Sufficient probable cause was found at Poole’s preliminary hearing and the case now moves on to District Court, with an arraignment date set for February 11th.

On Friday, October 15th, 2021, Riverton Police Department (RPD) officers reportedly discovered Poole in a vehicle with the following: 2.3 grams of suspected methamphetamine, .6 grams of suspected heroin, 2 small blue pills of suspected Fentanyl, and .2 grams of suspected carfentanil.

Officers also discovered several paraphernalia items “consistent with the use of methamphetamine and heroin.”

All of the reportedly discovered drugs were later tested, with the suspected methamphetamine and carfentanil both testing “presumptive positive.”

Poole’s arraignment has been set for February 11th.
