TRIPP - A Wyoming man who resisted arrest in Aberdeen was caught in Tripp and charged with drug possession.

On Jan. 19, a Tripp police officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by 44-year-year-old Joshua Smith, of Mills, Wyoming, according to court documents.

Dispatchers advised that Smith was wanted in Wyoming for violating parole, so he was detained, and officers later found methamphetamine in the car.

Dispatchers also advised Smith resisted arrest in Aberdeen the day before.

Smith was charged with possession of a controlled substance, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
