SHERIFF'S OFFICE ARRESTS THREE IN BANK ROBBERY CONSPIRACY AND FOR STOLEN TRUCK AND FIREARMS.

The Laramie County Sheriff's Office has arrested three Cheyenne men on charges of Conspiracy to Rob the Burns Bank and possession of a stolen truck and stolen firearms. Arrested was 20 year old Cody L. Dysart, 25 year old William T. McCurdy, and 28 year old Derrick A. Gifford, all of Cheyenne. Dysart and McCurdy were arrested on February 12th and Gifford on February 13th.

The three men are alleged to have been involved in stealing a truck and firearms. The truck and guns were recovered in Colorado. The truck was stolen here in Cheyenne, while the firearms were taken from an acquaintance of one of the suspects in Colorado prior to the bank robbery.

The initial investigation indicates that the three men attempted to rob the Burns Bank during the early morning hours of January 31st. Although parked behind the bank, they attempted to gain entry to the front door, but were thwarted when the bank employees had locked the doors behind them when entering to start employment that morning, and the front doors remained locked. They were then scared off when a report of their stolen truck was broadcast over the police scanner they were listening to. Bank employees were not contacted, nor aware at the time that the attempt was being made.

Information received from the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation concerning a separate investigation indicated that one of the suspects had been talking about robbing the Burns bank. During the Sheriff's Office investigation further information was developed that identified the three suspects and consequently recovered the stolen truck and firearms.

The case remains under further investigation and the three individuals remain in custody in the Laramie County Detention Facility pending their initial appearance in court.

The Laramie County Sheriff's Office has been made aware of a scam that is using a cloned Department phone number showing up on caller ID and threats of arrest if individuals do not"pay a fine" for some unspecified violation by a set time on a set day.

The individual received two phone calls but hung up on both calls

.

The individual used a badge number with an"SI" prefix. This is not valid for any law enforcement agencies in this area.

Con Artists Posing as DEA Agents.

Prescription Drug Scam

Sheriff Glick would like to make Laramie County residents aware of the following Prescription Drug Scam. Several Sweetwater County residents who purchased prescription medication by phone or over the Internet, have received calls from imposters claiming to be agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and then continue to threaten arrest if a fine is not paid.

The caller most often instructs prospective victims to pay the bogus fine via wire transfer. Victims are often told their homes will be searched if they do not pay the fine. These fraudulent calls appear to be originating from overseas. Officials say the criminals involved in the scheme use special phone scramblers which make the calls appear to originate in the United States.

Anyone who receives a telephone call from a person claiming to be a federal agent or other law enforcement officer seeking money to pay a drug fine should refuse to do so and contact a special DEA hot line at 1-877-792-2873 to report the call.

COMBINED BOMB TEAM RESPONDS TO POSSIBLE EXPLOSIVE DEVICE.

The Laramie County Sheriff's Office and Cheyenne Police Department Combined Bomb (EOD) Team responded Tuesday morning at approximately 10:00AM to a site in the 2500 Block of South Greeley Highway to the report of an improvised explosive device.

The location is at the intersection of South Greeley Highway and Artesian Road.

A citizen waiting to ride the bus noticed a device described as a 15" PVC pipe with wires at one end and duct tape underneath the bench and partially hidden under a discarded blanket.

The combined EOD (Explosives) Team responded and was able to move the devise to an area on Artesian Road that was open and away from residences. Upon inspection it was determined the item was not an explosive device and contained within the PVC Tube was the skeleton of a small lizard.

For safety reasons, South Greeley Highway was shut down twice for short periods of time and no evacuations were conducted. This allowed for initial inspection of the potential device and movement to a safer location.
