FARSON, Wyo. - The powdery substance that Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers found in a zip-close bag during a recent traffic stop didn't turn out to be drugs after all.
Sgt. Stephen Townsend of the patrol says then when troopers pulled over two men in a car Wednesday, they found small amounts of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and thought the bag might hold illegal drugs.
Troopers contacted the car's owner - the girlfriend of one of the men - and asked her.
The woman told troopers the baggie held her grandmother's cremated ashes. She said they had been very close and she always keeps the ashes in her car.
Townsend says troopers put the ashes back.
