SIOUX FALLS (AP) - A 31-year-old citizen of Poland has been sentenced to 2½ years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana.
U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Robert Lukasz Rydlewski of Reno, Nevada, was indicted by a federal grand jury last February and entered his plea in December. He was sentenced last week.
Prosecutors say Rydlewski was a member of a conspiracy formed in about January 2012 to distribute marijuana in South Dakota and elsewhere.
They say that while Rydlewski was living in California, he used cash sent to him by a co-conspirator to purchase marijuana from individuals running a marijuana grow operation in California. He then mailed the marijuana to the co-conspirator at different locations, including South Dakota.
Rydlewski was turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
