Over 40 Pounds of Marijuana Seized on I-80 in Cheyenne
A San Francisco, California woman could face up to 10 years in prison after a Wyoming trooper found 43.8 pounds of marijuana in her car.
According to an affidavit, 39-year-old Maria E. Barquero was pulled over for a lane use violation on Interstate 80 in Cheyenne on Jan. 25.
The traffic stop led to a search of the car and two large suitcases containing 38 vacuum sealed packages of marijuana were found in the trunk.
Barquero was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana.
Barquero is free on a $5,000 cash bond. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 8 in Laramie County Circuit Court.
