From that investigation, approximately 200 pounds of illegal controlled substance was seized.
With the help of the Cheyenne County Attorney’s Office the appropriate forfeiture orders were obtained to complete the asset forfeiture on three of the five vehicles.
Of the vehicles that were seized, two of them will be put into use for the drug unit while the third vehicle, a 2005 Dodge Durango, will be used by the Sheriff’s Office for administrative use, sending deputies to trainings and meetings.
