Macon-  The three major suspects in a three-state indoor marijuana growing operation have been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Frank Spring, Riley Trey McDaniel, and Michael Dean Slaymaker now face federal charges, but the exact charges won't be released until the paperwork is filed Friday in Albany.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office initially said Spring was the mastermind and the link between the homes busted in Lee and Terrell Counties.

They said Slaymaker assisted with grow operations in Dougherty and Terrell Counties and McDaniel operated two grow homes in Atlanta.

The indictments bring the number of people federally charged in the case up to 10. Fourteen people face state charges.
