Warrant arrests

30 year old Damon Coando of FT. Washakie, 22 year old Gregory Aramo of Lander, 29 year old John Chavez of Riverton. 

On 4/17/12 at approximately 6:30 AM Brian Sunrhodes was stopped after officers received and aired REDDI report.  Upon the Officer contacting Brian he was able to smell a strong odor of alcohol, and observed him to have bloodshot eyes.  Brian was asked out of the vehicle for field sobriety testing.  The test showed Brian was too intoxicated to operate a motor vehicle.  Brian was placed under arrest and charged with DUI and driving without a valid driver’s license. 

43 Year old Julie Smith of Lander was arrested for DUI Friday afternoon after she was reported in as an intoxicated driver.  Julie was picking a child up from school at the time of the report.  When the Officer contacted Julie he observed her six year old child in the vehicle.  

Sunday morning at approximately 1230 AM Officer Ryder was traveling Westbound on Main Street in the 800 block.  Officer Ryder observed a vehicle driven by 43 year old Tristen McFarland traveling Eastbound on Main Street at a high rate of speed.  Tristen did not negotiate the corner in the 900 block of Main Street, and collided with the Dairyland sign.  EMS was summoned to the scene and transported both occupants.  Alcohol is considered a factor for the collision and DUI charges are pending for Tristen.
