RAPID CITY, S.D. — A Colorado man who said he was delivering hemp to Minnesota when he was arrested in South Dakota has been indicted by a grand jury after his load tested positive for THC, the component in marijuana that produces a high.
A grand jury in Jackson County, South Dakota, last month indicted Robert Herzberg, 41, of Red Feather Lakes, Colorado, on charges of intending to distribute marijuana and possessing more than 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) of the drug. He also faces charges of ingesting marijuana and cocaine, according to court records. Herzberg is free on $5,000 bond and due in court Nov. 6.
Herzberg told a state trooper he was delivering 300 pounds (136 kilograms) of hemp from Colorado to Minneapolis July 16 when he was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 90. He was arrested after the trooper found „two large white sacks that contained a green leafy substance that looked and smelled like raw marijuana” and field tested positive for the drug.
