CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Court documents say two Florida men are facing felony drug charges after Wyoming Highway Patrol found them with about 40 pounds (18 kilograms) of marijuana.

KTWO-AM reports (http://bit.ly/2fi3UpG ) a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper pulled over the two men of Palm Harbor for speeding Sept. 13 in southeast Wyoming. The traffic stop led to a search where officials found 35 packages of marijuana in the trunk of their car.

The men, ages 21 and 22, have been charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and felony possession of marijuana. The two could be sentenced to up 15 years in prison if convicted.

Their preliminary hearings will take place Sept. 22 in the Laramie County Circuit Court.
