Four area men have been convicted in Federal Court for Distribution of Methamphetamine, Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine and Felon in Possession of Firearms.

48-year-old Karl James Petnz of rural Deerwood, 37-year-old Noel Gutierrez Manzanares and Randy Lee Motzko of Garrison, all pled guilty in Federal Court and will be sentenced at a later date.
