DETROIT (AP) - Federal officials are seeking three men convicted by a jury in Detroit for their roles in what authorities describe as a “massive drug ring” that trafficked heroin, cocaine and marijuana.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 39-year-old Carlos Powell, 36-year-old Eric Powell and 38-year-old Earnest Lee Proge Jr., were not in the downtown courtroom when the jury returned its verdict Monday.

The trial ended Monday.

U.S. Attorney’s spokeswoman Gina Balaya says Carlos Powell was in the courtroom Monday morning, but it’s not clear if the other men were there.

Authorities say the ring operated from 2006 to 2010. More than $21 million was seized between June 2010 and November 2010. A Rolls Royce, Bentley and Ferrari were among vehicles and other items seized.

The men are considered armed and dangerous.
