Meth Suspects Arrested After Police Chase
A Cheyenne woman and a Colorado man were arrested this week after a police chase through Rock Springs, according to Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell.
He says 30-year-old Daniel Markus McBride of Colorado Springs and 28-year-old Miranda Faith Lida Miller of Cheyenne were implicated in meth trafficking in an undercover drug sting operation on Tuesday.
The drug sting was conducted by detectives from the Sweetwater County Sheriff's Department, as well as officers of the Rock Springs Police Department and agents with the state Division of Criminal Investigation.
The Sheriff says that when officers tried to stop McBride and Miller as part of the operation, the pair led police on a car chase reaching speeds of 65 mph on city streets packed with ice and snow.
Lowell says the car driven by the pair hit a parked car and stalled. They then tried to flee on foot, but they were soon caught and arrested. Miller is being charged with delivery of methamphetamine, conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine and several other charges. McBride faces charges of delivery of meth, conspiracy to deliver meth and interference with a peace officer.
Circuit Court Judge John Prokos has set Miller's bond at $30,000 and McBride's at $35,000. At last report both were being held in the Sweetwater County jail.
