A 37-year-old Scottsbluff man is scheduled to be be back in a Wyoming court room on Thursday and could face more than a decade in prison after a Wyoming trooper found meth and other drugs in his car.

KGAB reports that Benjamin Henne was pulled over north of Cheyenne on December 7 after a trooper responding to reports of him possibly driving impaired. The trooper eventually spotted Henne speeding down the northbound shoulder of U.S. Highway 85.

Henne reportedly told the trooper that his car, which smelled of marijuana, “just got away from (him).” He also told the trooper that he was coming from Denver.

The car was subsequently searched and six dispensary bags containing suspected marijuana, 11 e-cigarette cartridges filled with suspected THC wax and two small bags containing suspected methamphetamine as well as other drugs and paraphernalia were reportedly found.

Henne was arrested and charged with felony possession of marijuana, felony possession of THC-wax and misdemeanor possession of methamphetamine.

Henne was booked into the Laramie County jail, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday December 20 at 9:30 a.m.
