SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 20-year-old Sioux City man has been convicted of two charges and acquitted of two more in a drug deal kidnapping last year.

Federal prosecutors say Trey Boykin was found guilty Thursday of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and kidnapping. He was found not guilty of two weapons charges.

Prosecutors say Boykin and Garry Patterson lured a Briar Cliff University student into Boykin’s car last February on the pretense of selling him marijuana. Prosecutors say the two drove the student away from campus, held him against his will and robbed him.

Patterson has already pleaded guilty to kidnapping and weapons charges.
