October 8, 2018

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Rapid City man has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for trafficking drugs between California and South Dakota.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 61-year-old Patrick Okroi brought methamphetamine from California once or twice a month in 2016, and gave it to others to distribute in western South Dakota.

Two people who distributed the drug each was sentenced earlier to about 10 years in prison. Another suspect awaits trial next March.
