RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Men from the Twin Ports caught hauling a large amount of marijuana through South Dakota will not serve any additional jail time if they stay out of trouble.

Sixty-four-year-old Dennis Krivinchuk of Superior and 66-year-old Richard Ward, of Duluth have been sentenced to time already served, probation and fines.

Authorities say the men had 60 pounds of marijuana and 150 grams of hashish when a Highway Patrol trooper stopped them on Interstate 90 near Rapid City last November. They pleaded guilty to drug charges last month in a deal with prosecutors.

The Rapid City Journal reports that each man spent about a month in jail. Krivinchuk could faces two years in prison if he violates probation, and Ward could face five years if he gets in trouble.
