On Tuesday morning, an officer with the Wyoming Highway Patrol pulled over 54-year-old Randy Rheinhardt for speeding along Interstate 80 just west of the small town, Elk Mountain. Rheinhardt was reportedly driving 13mph over the posted 65mph speed limit.

During the routine traffic stop, the officer noticed suspicious activity (Rheinhardt appear intoxicated) and established probable cause for conducting a search. While searching the vehicle, the officer found a stash of over 20-pounds of marijuana, which was allegedly being transported to Indiana for distribution.

Both Rheinhardt and his passenger, 28-year-old Jon Paul File, were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance. In addition, Rheinhardt was also charged with speeding and driving under the influence of a controlled substance.
