PITTSBURGH (AP) - Three men have been convicted in a western Pennsylvania heroin ring that was dismantled in 2013 following a federal investigation.

A jury on Thursday found Thomas Hopes, of Hill District as well as Keith Harris and Gregory Harris, of Homestead, guilty of drug dealing. All three are in their early 20s.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1L3f2MD ) the men were also acquitted on charges related to an alleged kidnapping and beating of a fellow drug dealer.
