SWEETWATER COUNTY, WYO – Bond was set Wednesday for a couple arrested after 100 pounds of marijuana was discovered in the trunk of their vehicle.
Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell said a patrol deputy and his K9 partner made a traffic stop on Interstate 80 near Wamsutter early Tuesday morning. The driver of the vehicle was identified as 27-year-old Ashley Marie Clark, of Bluefield, West Virginia. Her passenger was Scott M. Schatek, 29, Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey.
A search of the vehicle, conducted after the deputy’s canine alerted to the presence of drugs, produced about 100 pounds of marijuana in vacuum-sealed bags, plus a vacuum sealer.
Schatek and Clark are both charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver (Marihuana), Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance (Marihuana), and felony-level Possession of a Controlled Substance (Marihuana). Clark is also charged with Following Too Closely.
Circuit Court Judge John Prokos set Schatek’s bond at $30,000 cash or surety, and Clark’s at $15,000 cash or surety.
