A 21-year-old Torrington, Wyoming, man faces six felony drug charges stemming from a Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation search warrant at an Evansville hotel Monday.

Quinton James Lee Fisher appeared in Casper Circuit Court on Tuesday, charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver involving fentanyl and methamphetamine, two counts of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance involving those drugs, and one count of possession of fentanyl, felony weight, and one count of methamphetamine, felony wait.

An arrest affidavit shows DCI agents, along with the Casper and Evansville police departments, executed a search warrant at a hotel on Bonanza Road and found Fischer and three others inside the room.

The room contained “numerous firearms of assorted types and calibers including on pistol seized from Fisher’s person, as well as several hundred rounds of ammunition for the different weapons,” the affidavit states.

Also seized were a large bag with more than 2 pounds of methamphetamine, and a large bag of blue colored fentanyl pills that agents estimated to be about 2,650 pills, the affidavit states.

In addition to drug-related items such as packaging and scales, agents seized $4,000 from Fisher, the affidavit states.

Both Fisher and a 19-year-old male suspect were arrested. The 19-year-old told police he and Fisher “were involved in the distribution of numerous types of controlled substances,” the affidavit states.

The possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver charges and the conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance charges all carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and $25,000 fine or both. The separate possession of fentanyl and methamphetamine, felony weight charges both carry a maximum penalty of seven years in prison and a fine of up to $15,000 or both.

Bond was set at $150,000 cash.

Fisher remains in the Natrona County jail.
