A traffic stop on Teton Pass last year has yielded a windfall for Jackson Hole law enforcement.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office last week was presented with a check from the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office for $6,972.00 in forfeiture funds. Those funds resulted from an October 26th traffic stop on Teton Pass which in which deputies seized nearly $34,000.00 in U.S. currency and arrested the driver for possession of marijuana.  With the assistance of the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, it was determined that a substantial amount of the seized money were proceeds from marijuana trafficking.  Since this investigation was launched  by the Teton County Sheriff’s Office, a portion of the seized funds were returned to the sheriff’s office to be used for future illegal drug investigations.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
