Last weekend a tourist left a handgun by the Taggart Lake trail in Grand Teton National Park. The man had a concealed carry permit from Utah but was cited for disorderly conduct and creating a hazardous condition. Just after noon Saturday someone found the gun and took it to park volunteers at the nearby trailhead, who called dispatch. The gun owner reported the gun missing about an hour later, according to Grand Teton National Park spokesman C.J. Adams. The gun slipped out of the man’s backpack when he was changing layers, Adams said.
A Jackson man was arrested for felony possession and driving under the influence of a controlled substance after an April 8 speed stop. The 29-year-old was reportedly accelerating and passing people on Broadway and speeding 36 in a 25 mph zone as he reached Town Square. When officers approached they could smell marijuana coming from the car, Jackson Police Sgt. Russ Ruschill said. The man admitted to smoking half an hour before driving, and he appeared “sleepy,” reports stated. The man was swaying when he got out of the car, officers reported. He turned over some THC he had in his pockets and an unopened vial of 75.66% THC oil. He had shake and rolling papers in his car, police said.
