CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A federal indictment alleges a drug organization moved large quantities of methamphetamine from Arizona to Wyoming before agents arrested the ringleader last year. A federal judge in Cheyenne this week unsealed the indictment that charges seven people from Wyoming and two from Arizona with conspiracy to possess and distribution of methamphetamine.
Phillip Martin of Cheyenne was sentenced last week to nearly 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to drug and weapons charges. Authorities say they confiscated nearly 40 pounds of meth and cocaine from Martin last fall. Five defendants in the case have pleaded guilty. Charges are pending against the others.
