Albany-  A new suspect was named Thursday in south Georgia's largest indoor marijuana growing operation.

Bryan Pellicano is charged with obstruction of justice. He was in federal court Thursday afternoon where prosecutors told a judge that Pellicano helped Michael Suber, Dean Slaymaker, and Anthony Rutkaukas move an indoor grow operation from a house on Florida Short Route and hide it in his grandmother's house on 12th Avenue in Albany. Pellicano is in the Dougherty County Jail on state charges and will face a detention hearing next week.

Thursday, Magistrate Judge Richard Hodge set bond for Trey Fulford at $15,000 which must be paid in full. Prosecutors read a conversation in which they say Fulford alerted Chuck Payne and Richard Rouse to tear down the indoor growing operation in Dawson and threatened to shoot drug agents.
