GILLETTE (WNE) — A man pulled over for speeding on Highway 50 on Aug. now faces 18 counts of possession — with almost as many variety of drugs as the number of charges against him.
Clay J. Plemmons, 30, of Montevideo, Minnesota, is charged with 14 felony counts of possession and four misdemeanor counts.
A Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper pulled over Plemmons about 12 miles south of Gillette when he saw him driving 80 mph in a 70 mph zone. The vehicle was stuffed with items — so much so that when the trooper tried to look through the passenger side window, he could hardly see the driver. But he did see a few glass containers in the center console that appeared to have THC wax in them.
Plemmons told the officer that he wasn’t sure exactly what was in the car because it had been so long since he had gone through everything.
A search turned up a variety of drugs, several of them — with a total of 1.84 pounds and 161 pills — were anabolic-androgenic steroids. Others included a total of 122 prescription pills that are on the controlled substances list.
Drugs seized included testosterone, methadone, cocaine, marijuana, diazepam, ecstasy and hydrocodone.
