Rapid City man gets 10 years for placing bomb
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - A Rapid City man who placed an explosive device on the porch of a MacArthur Street home found out his fate in court Tuesday.

A search warrant for Irwin-Schacht’s home later uncovered additional bomb-making materials.
Tuesday, Irwin-Schacht was sentenced to 10 years in prison with 2 years suspended.
