DETROIT (AP) - The government is offering a reward for information that leads to the capture of three men who didn’t appear in a Detroit courtroom to hear the verdict in a major drug trial.

Carlos Powell, brother Eric Powell and Earnest Proge Jr. weren’t present when a jury convicted them Monday in federal court.

The U.S. Marshals Service says it’s offering up to $5,000 for each fugitive. The three had been free on bond during the trial. They’re considered armed and dangerous.

Authorities say the drug ring operated from 2006 to 2010. More than $21 million was seized, along with luxury cars.

The men face up to life in prison.
