MASON CITY — A Mason City man has pleaded guilty to federal gun and drug charges.

47-year-old Andrew Lofton was arrested in April of last year after a warrant was executed at an apartment in the 700 block of North Federal. The complaint says during the search, two handguns with obliterated serial numbers were seized, a backpack that contained about 22 ounces of methamphetamine and another handgun. Also allegedly located were United States currency, packaging material, and a digital scale.

State charges were dismissed after a federal indictment on four counts of possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance, conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, and being in possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. Lofton recently pleaded guilty to the conspiracy to distribute drugs and the gun possession charge.

No sentencing date was immediately set.
