SHERIDAN — On July 13th, a Butte, Montana man’s failure to take care of traffic tickets in Wyoming has led to his arrest for a felony drug charge. Zachary W. Carter, 26 years old, was travelling east on Interstate 90 north of Sheridan when he was stopped by a Wyoming State Trooper for speeding 84 mph in a 75 mph zone on a 2008 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The stop occurred near mile post 14 on I 90 at 2:18 p.m. approximately six miles north of Sheridan, Wyoming.

A drivers license check on Carter revealed two warrants for his arrest out of Campbell County Wyoming for traffic violations. Upon his arrest for the warrants, the trooper discovered drug paraphernalia on Carter. A continued search reveled just under one pound of high grade marijuana in the saddle bag of the motorcycle.
