A Jackson Hole, Wyoming Sheriff’s deputy apparently lost a box containing 28 grams of methamphetamine along Highway 22, clearly marked with the letters “METH” on it. The box was being used by a Teton County Sheriff’s deputy in a training exercise with a drug sniffing dog. After the session, the deputy left the box on the bumper of the vehicle and drove off.
After the deputy realized what had happened and reported it to his supervisor, County Sheriff Jim Whalen ordered a sweep of the area by 10 officers, although the package was not located. Despite the police department’s plea to the public, no one has turned it in so far. According to the Sheriff’s office, if anyone is caught with the drugs, they’ll likely be charged with felony drug possession.
