SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Two Sioux Falls men have been sentenced to federal prison for a multi-state drug ring.

Investigators say the men were responsible for bringing more than 50 pounds of methamphetamine to South Dakota. Thirty-four-year-old Alvin Felicianosoto was sentenced to 17½ years for conspiracy to distribute meth and possession with intent to deliver.

The Argus Leader says 32-year-old Orlando Dones-Vargas was sentenced to 19½ years for the same charges.

Both were found guilty in jury trials earlier this year.
