A 52-year-old man was arraigned on two drug charges Tuesday in Fourth Judicial District Court in Sheridan. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

On February 29, 2024, Gregory Norskog allegedly sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant in Sheridan during a controlled buy arranged by agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. During the arrest, Norskog was found to be in possession of six grams of methamphetamine and a search of his vehicle yielded approximately 46 grams of meth. Norskog, at an arraignment hearing Tuesday in District Court, pleaded not guilty to the charges of felony delivery of a controlled substance – methamphetamine, and felony possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine. The possession charge is being prosecuted as a felony because Norskog was allegedly in possession of an amount greater than three grams, which is a felony in Wyoming. 

District Court Judge Darci Phillips scheduled a #5 stack, three-day jury trial to begin Monday, July 29. A pretrial conference will take place Tuesday, July 2 at 11 am. Norskog’s bond was continued under the same terms and conditions that were previously set in Circuit Court. If convicted on both counts, Norskog faces up to 27 years in prison and fines of up to $40,000.
