CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A traffic stop led to the arrest of Bobby Neal Jolly, 37, on Saturday, May 11 for felony drug possession. Officer Penhale observed Jolly’s vehicle failing to use a turn signal while turning onto Evans Avenue from East 18th Street. Both the driver and a passenger exited the vehicle hastily when the officer turned around to investigate further.

A K-9 unit was requested to assist at the scene. The narcotics detection dog alerted to the presence of drugs in the vehicle, after which officer found a small plastic baggie containing what appeared to be methamphetamine on Jolly.

Jolly was promptly handcuffed and taken into custody. Officer Koeppel took the suspected methamphetamine to the police department, where it was weighed and tested. The substance, weighing 4.02 grams without packaging, tested positive for methamphetamine, according to booking sheets.

Additionally, officers found one gram of suspected marijuana wax in Jolly’s possession. Jolly faces charges of felony possession of methamphetamine, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and driving under a suspended license. At his initial court appearance May 13, Jolly was set a $3,000 cash bond with a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 22.

The arrest took place at approximately 7:44 p.m. near the intersection of Evans Avenue and East 18th Street. Jolly, a Cheyenne resident, is currently being held at the Laramie County Detention Center.
