CASPER, Wyo. — Casper Police say that they’ve arrested a suspect, after it was alleged that they brought marijuana to the Probation and Parole office, which prompted a home search that reportedly found methamphetamine.

Anna Jo Otterholt, born in 1980, faces two felony charges for Possession of a Controlled Substance. The charges are noted to be at the felony level, as third or subsequent charges for the suspect.

Police say that on January 28, at approximately noon, they responded to the State of Wyoming Probation and Parole office to assist agents with transporting a P&P client for a probation search.

According to an affidavit filed in Natrona County Circuit Court, Mills Police Officers reportedly found marijuana inside of a cigarette pack, which was found inside Otterholt’s purse, that Otterholt had brought to the P&P office.

Agents and officers then proceeded to a Casper motel, where Otterholt was reported to be living, for a home search. During the search a shard of suspect methamphetamine was found on a nightstand. Otterholt also provided P&P agents with a socket containing suspected marijuana residue, and multiple small baggies containing suspected methamphetamine residue.

Otterholt was subsequently arrested and transported to the Natrona County Detention Center.

All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
