CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A 33-year-old Cheyenne man is facing multiple charges, including a felony sale or delivery of marijuana charge, after an early Thursday morning traffic stop on East 19th Street.

Regis Lawrence Adams is additionally charged with a felony count of bringing a controlled substance into the jail and misdemeanor counts of cocaine possession, suspended driver’s license and turn signal requirements.

A Cheyenne police officer conducted the stop on East 19th Street at Converse Avenue after seeing a Ford Crown Victoria with no hood fail to signal a turn from Dell Range Boulevard onto Converse Avenue.

Adams is the vehicle’s owner, and the officer had previously stopped him on Sept. 8 and knew his license was suspended, a booking sheet states.

The officer reportedly made contact with Adams from the passenger side of the vehicle. After receiving Adams’s identification, the officer went to the driver’s side and saw “a large bag of suspected marijuana (over three ounces) on the floorboard behind the driver’s seat,” the sheet states. Adams was asked to step out of the vehicle, at which time he was handcuffed.

While searching him, the officer found a jeweler’s baggie with suspected cocaine inside Adams’s left front pocket. While searching the vehicle, the officer reportedly found a small purse with suspected marijuana and a large amount of jeweler’s baggies and a scale. Suspected narcotics residue was seen on the scale, the document states.

When Adams was taken to Laramie County Detention Center, a pat down revealed a $100 bill in his sock with another estimated gram of suspected marijuana.
