A Greenwood man is among the last defendants convicted in a 20-person fentanyl and methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of Indiana, 40-year-old David Duggar of Greenwood has been found guilty by a federal grand jury following an eight-day trial.
