Article Text:No one hurt when trailer strikes home No one was hurt when a trailer came loose from the truck that was hauling it Monday and struck a house.

The incident occurred at 4:20 p.m. on South 11 Mile Road near West LaPorte Road, reports the Midland County Sheriff's Office. Driver Shane Derek Maltby, 28, Freeland, told deputies he incorrectly attached a vehicle dolly to the GMC Sierra he was driving.

The trailer came loose and went off the left side of the road, hitting a home at 3867 S. 11 Mile. The home's siding was damaged. Maltby was ticketed for spilling of load. Saginaw man convicted of federal drug charges

A 30-year-old Saginaw man was convicted of federal drug charges on Friday by a federal jury. The conviction of Marcus Conway came after a jury deliberated for two hours at the end of a three day trial before U.S. District Court Judge Thomas L. Ludington. Evidence presented during the trial showed Conway was trafficking cocaine in the Saginaw area during 2007 and that he's sold cocaine base to a government informant three different times in June and July of 2007.

The indictment came after state and local law enforcement officers, including the Bay Area Narcotics Enforcement Team and the Saginaw SAFE Streets team, investigated the drug trafficking activities of Saginaw gangs, including the Sunnyside Gang. In the past, Conway has been convicted three times on felony drug charges and once for perjury. As a result, the mandatory minimum sentence for the newest conviction is 10 years.
