RAPID CITY, SD -
An Illinois man caught with more than 10 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle during a traffic stop in South Dakota has been ordered to serve 10 days in jail.

Zupkus must successfully complete four years of probation to avoid a longer jail term. He also must get chemical dependency treatment and submit to random drug testing.
