Cheyenne Woman Caught with Meth During Warrant Arrest
A 46-year-old Cheyenne woman is facing a felony charge after authorities, once again, caught her with drugs.
Melanie Dawn Sorensen was arrested at her home Sunday night on a Carbon County warrant for probation revocation stemming from an original charge of DUI.
While being booked into the Laramie County Jail, a Sgt. reportedly found a 0.5 gram bag of methamphetamine in Sorensen’s pants pocket.
A criminal history check showed Sorensen was convicted in Laramie County in Nov. 2011 for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and Sept. 2013 for misdemeanor possession of crack cocaine and marijuana.
There were also numerous entries that showed arrests and convictions for failure to appears on other drug charges.
Sorensen has been charged with third or subsequent offense possession of a controlled substance. If convicted, she could face up to five years in prison.
Sorensen is currently being held on $5,000 cash bond. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 25 in Laramie County Circuit Court.
