On Monday morning at about 2:30 a.m. the Stanton County Sheriff’s office stopped a vehicle for speeding 14 miles over the speed limit on Hwy 35 near Woodland Park.
A subsequent consent search led to the discovery of concentrated THC, Hydrocodone, Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia. The lone driver, Jorge Sandoval-Martinez, 23, of Norfolk was taken into custody and during a search of his person a pistol was found hidden in his waistband.
Sandoval-Martinez was jailed and later released after he posted a $20,000.00 bond. He faces several felony charges when he makes his first court appearance in November.
