Comments Off on Sonja Prettyweasel, 25 of Riverton, with large quantity of Methamphetamine shards tried to take child, was stopped and arrested by Riverton Police

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Police responding to a domestic fight call  at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 2300 block of Walnut Avenue in the Wind River Estates ended up making two separate arrests in what one officer called finding “one of the largest shards of methamphetamine” that he’d ever seen.

A shard of meth is a crystal about 7 to 8 inches long. Police found “three to four” of them, enough for three-quarters of an ounce worth, on Sonja Prettyweasel, 25 of Riverton and Shandell Lopez, 24 of Arapahoe.

“Personally, I don’t recall seeing any larger shard of methamphetamine,” said Captain Eric Murphy on Friday morning. “They were very large.”

Police received a call at 10:31 a.m. on Wednesday of a fight. One of the suspects, Prettyweasel, allegedly arrived at the residence after being gone for some four days wanting to take her child from her husband. He refused and she allegedly began to assault him. When police arrived, a report indicated they found fresh track marks indicating intravenous drug use on Prettyweasel’s arms. She allegedly admitted to officers that she had used meth in the last couple of hours.

She was arrested for Domestic Assault and on the possession charges. A woman with Prettyweasel, Lopez, was also arrested on the drug charge.

A complete report on the incident had yet to be filed. The woman’s husband was apparently uninjured in the assault. The age of the child was not immediately available.
