A pair of Valley men has pleaded 'not guilty' to federal gun charges.
Jose Monjes, Jr., Weyers Cave, and John Ellinger, Jr., Staunton, were arrested by federal agents and local police earlier this month.
Both men have been charged as felons in possession of firearms. Monjes also faces a methamphetamine possession charge.
On Thursday, they were arraigned at the U.S. District Court in Charlottesville. Their next court appearance was set for Sept. 7 at the U.S. District Court in Harrisonburg.
