The seizure took place nine miles west of Cheyenne. A 2011 Dodge pickup pulling a horse trailer was pulled over by state troopers for not having visible registration. A highway patrol K-9 drug unit was brought in during the stop and alerted the authorities of marijuana in the trailer.

It was determined that Larry Gibson was transporting the marijuana from Eureka, California to Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Gibson was arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and felony intent to deliver a controlled substance. The street value of the marijuana was estimated at $394,000.
