A 35-year-old Cheyenne woman has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute fentanyl and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime.

According to a booking sheet, Amanda Christine Gray was slumped over in the driver's seat of a black Ford with the key turned over in the ignition when Cheyenne police contacted her in the 600 block of East Carlson Street at 10:48 p.m. on Aug. 3, 2023.

Police say Gray had slurred speech, kept nodding off, was confused, and had constricted pupils, and when they asked her if she had recently used fentanyl, she said, "Yes."

Police say there was crumbled tin foil and a metal pipe in the center console, and upon further search of the vehicle, 183 fentanyl pills, $1,380 in cash, and a loaded .40-caliber Smith and Wesson pistol were found.

Gray pleaded guilty to the charges on Feb. 20 and yesterday, May 13, United States Senior District Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal sentenced her to five years for each count to be served consecutively.

Gray will be subject to five years of supervised release once she's released from prison.
