Albany-  A third person connected to the Lee County indoor marijuana growing operation pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court. Margaret Shaw plead guilty to misprison of felony, that's basically an obstruction charge.

Shaw tried to conceal an indoor growing operation in Franklin, North Carolina from authorities. Agents seized 90-marijuana plants from that home. They say it's connected to the Lee County operation.

At one point Shaw told investigators she would rather face a 10-year sentence than be considered a snitch. She now faces up to three years in prison after her plea.
