Locals Nabbed in South Dakota for, well, You Can Probably Guess

I90Don't let the city's name fool ya: Highway Patrol in Rapid City, South Dakota, are sticklers for speeding. And they don't like marijuana posession much, either -- at least not when you've (allegedly) got 23.5 pounds of it moving through The Mount Rushmore State in a rental car.

Caution, marijuanaKenneth Jordan, 29, of Ferndale, Scott Mitchell, 32, of Arcata, and Mark Antonio Martinez, 24, of Seattle, were pulled over last week "for allegedly going 5 mph over the speed limit, slowing down quickly and following too closely," the Rapid City Journal  reported today.

CautionThe men's "nervous" demeanors, combined with "a large amount of luggage in the rear cargo area" set the trooper's Spidey sense a-tingling. A search of the vehicle revealed the aforementioned weed, plus some Ecstacy and the attendant paraphernalia, according to court documents.

The trio has been charged with possession with intent to distribute, among other charges, and each has been released on $10,000 bail.
