Two Men In Custody After Meth Bust – County 17

A traffic stop on Highway 50 south of Gillette Tuesday led to the seizure of close to two pounds of methamphetamine.

Jerry Dawson of Dickinson, North Dakota, and passenger, Bobby Dickerson of Bakersfield, California, have been charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, felony possession of a controlled substance, and felony possession with intent to deliver, according to an Oct. 14 release from the Wyoming Highway Patrol (WHP).

The incident began when a WHP trooper stopped a 2020 Chrysler 300 for traveling 92 mph in a 70-mph zone, roughly 20 miles south of Gillette, per the release. Upon approaching the vehicle, the trooper noticed the smell of marijuana emanating from the car while speaking to the occupants. He also noticed a marijuana bud on the passenger’s seat, according to the release.

A search of the car revealed approximately two pounds of methamphetamine in the trunk.

At this point, Dickerson attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended in a field north of the location shortly thereafter by the backup WHP trooper who was assisting in the arrest, the release stated.
