Sublette County Sheriff’s deputies and agents of the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation were involved in these arrests. According to the SCSO, these are just two more arrests in a long series of arrests in Sublette County’s continued efforts to take drugs off the streets.
Sublette County Sheriff Hank Ruland said, "As Sublette County’s Sheriff, I’ve committed the resources of the Sheriff’s Office to working more drug cases. We have ‘turned up the heat’ on drug dealers and it will only get worse if you are dealing. If you know someone who is dealing, or even thinking about it, I suggest you tell them that they are in grave danger of being arrested if they continue their criminal activities in Sublette County. The proof of this statement lies in the booking records of the local jail."
If you know of drug dealers, or if you suspect drug activity in the county, call the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office at the central number 307-367-6593 and ask to speak to a detective or deputy about your information. Sheriff Ruland added, "Taking these drugs off the street is not only a cop problem, but a community problem. Help us make Sublette County’s streets a safer place to live by helping to deter drug activity."
