GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - Two Utah residents who were arrested on their way to sell drugs in South Dakota after they called deputies in a state of paranoia have pleaded guilty.

The Gillette News Record reports (http://bit.ly/1P8kRvd ) that 25-year-old Dwight Attakai and 29-year-old Taryn Greymountain have pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine. As part of the plea agreement, charges of conspiracy to deliver meth have been dropped.

Prosecutors say they will recommend two- to eight-year prison sentences for the pair.

Prosecutors say Greymountain and Attakai were driving on Highway 59 in April when Attakai called the Sheriff’s Office saying vehicles were following him. When deputies arrived, they noticed the pair was visibly agitated. Almost 2 ounces of meth was found hidden in their car.

The pair admitted they planned to sell the drugs in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
