A 60-year-old Rapid City man has admitted hiding painkillers in a box of Valentine's candy he mailed
to a prospective buyer.
Clement Shaw Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to distribution of a controlled substance. He faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Prosecutors say Shaw received $400 via a Western Union wire in exchange for hydrocodone pills. The package was intercepted in the mail.
Shaw's bond was recently revoked after he was charged with disorderly conduct for an incident at the Fort Meade Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
