CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Here is a brief summary of notable crimes in and around Cheyenne this weekend, obtained through law enforcement reports compiled by the Cheyenne Police Department and the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office.
Fleeing and Eluding Police, US 30, Sept. 8
A trooper observed a driver unable to maintain a lane of travel. The driver also threw a cigarette out of the window of the vehicle. The trooper activated the overhead emergency lights and attempted to pull the driver over. The driver turned and fled at a high rate of speed westbound on US 30 before turning south on WY 212. The driver continued to travel south on WY 212 at a high rate of speed, reaching speeds of up to 100 mph, and troopers had to deploy stop sticks on the front tires. The driver then turned southbound on US 85 and almost ran the trooper off the road. The vehicle eventually slowed down due to missing rubber on its tires before rolling partially on the passenger side. The trooper quickly arrested the driver, who said they had fled because they had a glass pipe with meth.
Disturbing the Peace and Disturbing Property, Cadillac Ranch, Sept. 10
Officers were sent to Cadillac Ranch for a call of a physical disturbance. Upon arrival, officers located security holding the suspect on the ground.
