KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — After a trial that lasted almost a month, a federal grand jury has convicted two Lawrence men and a California man in a conspiracy that brought $17 million in drugs to Kansas.

Los Rovell Dahda and Roosevelt Rico Dahda, 32-year-old twins from Lawrence, and Justin Cherif Pickel, of San Lorenzo, California, were found guilty Wednesday of conspiracy, as well as several other drug charges.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the government is seeking a $16.9 million judgment against the three men.

The Dahdas and Pickel were among 43 people arrested in Kansas and California and charged in 2012 in a seven-year conspiracy that funneled more than 8,000 pounds of marijuana to Lawrence and the Kansas City area.
