GILLETTE (WNE) — Two Olympia, Washington, residents are in Campbell County jail after they were caught with more than 40 pounds of marijuana and more than 9 pounds of THC wax last Saturday after being pulled over for speeding on Interstate 90.

Mark Reed, 56, and Octavia DeVais Reed, 55, were pulled over at about 9 a.m. when a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper clocked them going 88 mph in a 80 mph zone about 3 miles from Gillette.

The driver, Mark Reed, apologized for speeding and explained that they were headed “back home,” which confused the trooper since they were traveling east. He asked Reed to clarify, and Reed said they’d been evicted and were moving to Florida, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The trooper found what he thought was more than 3 ounces of marijuana — the level for a felony — in dispensary containers in the center console, in her purse and in a bag holding a C-pap machine, according to the affidavit.
