OR Man Sentenced In SD For 400 Pounds Of Pot

April 27, 2012, 1:35 PM

PIERRE, SD -

An Oregon man caught with nearly 400 pounds of marijuana in South Dakota has been sentenced to six years in prison.

The drug charge against 49-year-old Darrell Hughes of Portland, Ore., stemmed from a traffic stop on Interstate 90 near Rapid City in April 2011. Authorities say Hughes had 374 pounds of marijuana in a rental truck.

It is the second sentencing in two weeks in South Dakota involving cases with a large amount of drugs. A Massachusetts man caught with nearly half a ton of marijuana in his pickup truck was sentenced earlier this month to eight years in prison.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the 1,300 pounds of marijuana in the two separate cases had a total street value of about $3 million.
