Two men were sentenced recently in Clay County District Court for their roles in the attempted manufacture of methamphetamine.

Robert T. Weis, 45, Bemidji, Minn., pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree controlled substance crime and was sentenced to 49 months in prison.

Lloyd J. Cermak, 44, no address available, pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree controlled substance crime and was sentenced to 39 months in prison.

The two were arrested July 16 shortly after employees of the Dilworth Wal-Mart reported to police that a number of people had purchased a large amount of ephedrine, which can be used to make methamphetamine.

According to court documents, the two men were part of a group that drove to the store in a van that held a tank containing anhydrous ammonia, another chemical used in making meth.
