NORTHWOOD — Two men held in the Worth County jail are facing federal charges for reportedly selling methamphetamine for several months in this community.
A grand jury last week charged Isaias Vasquez-Amaya and Jose Nicolas Vasquez-Mendez with up to five charges each. It is unclear where the men are from.
Vasquez-Amaya faces five charges, including one count of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, three counts of distributing a controlled substance and one count of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.

Vasquez-Mendez faces one count of each charge.
A grand jury returned the indictment last week.
The indictment alleges the men conspired to distribute at least 500 grams or more of a substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine between February and August 27 and at least 50 grams of pure meth.
Federal court documents do not indicate where the drugs were sold.
