Cheyenne man caught with 40 pounds of meth and cocaine

Posted: Updated:

The Laramie County Sheriff's Department says officers have seized a total of nearly 40 pounds of methamphetamine and cocaine following the arrest of a local man last month.
Federal prosecutors have charged 53-year-old Phillip Martin of Cheyenne with possession of 500 grams or more of methamphetamine following his Nov. 26 arrest. A federal magistrate has ordered him detained.
A press release from the sheriff's office on Thursday states officers first found nearly 9 pounds of meth and cocaine in Martin's vehicle. It states a later search of his residence turned up 29 pounds of meth and another pound of cocaine, along with 25 guns and $18,500 in cash.
Cheyenne lawyer Terry Harris represents Martin and has declined comment on the prosecution.  An attempt to reach Harris on Thursday was unsuccessful.
