Cheyenne police bust drug possession following motel fire alarm

(Gregory Hirst, Oil City News)

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A routine fire alarm check turned into a significant drug bust early Sunday morning, leading to the arrest of a 35-year-old man in a Cheyenne motel.

Officer Sutton responded to a fire alarm on the 2000 block of West Lincolnway, finding Robert Allen Yetsick II unresponsive amid evidence of drug possession, according to booking sheets. Initially identified by a false name, Yetsick was discovered with suspected methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana.

The discovery included a syringe with a dark liquid, 79.5 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 3.41 grams of suspected heroin and a small amount of suspected marijuana. Two warrants from Laramie County, including a felony probation violation, complicated his legal troubles further.

Yetsick now faces multiple charges, including felony drug possession.
