Charges Filed in Sheridan County Poaching Case

Sheridan County resident Gregg Lambdin has been charged with two misdemeanors and nine felonies for wanton destruction of big game animals.

The 62-year-old Lambdin made his Initial Appearance in Sheridan County Circuit Court Tuesday where a $10,000 cash bond with conditions was set. According to information from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Sheridan Regional Office, the charges stem from a two-month investigation by law enforcement with the Game and Fish after information was provided to them about possible illegal activity on a property outside of Sheridan.

In cooperation with the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office, a search warrant was served on November 27 of last year and evidence was collected from the property. During the course of the investigation, 114 big game animal carcasses in varying stages of decomposition were documented.

Based on results from the investigation, an arrest warrant was issued on Monday and Lambdin turned himself into the Sheriff's Office Tuesday, and later appeared in Circuit Court. If convicted on all 11 charges, Lambdin faces a total of up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $110,000. A preliminary hearing in Circuit Court will be set at a later date.
