Albany-  Another accused conspirator in that drug ring entered a not guilty plea in federal court Thursday morning.

Michael Suber is charged with one count of conspiracy to grow in excess of one thousand marijuana plants at his home on Florida Short Route in Terrell County.

Thursday he waived his right to a detention hearing and will be held in the Dougherty County Jail until his trial. Suber could be sentenced to 10 years to life if he's convicted.

William Forehand of Nashville was also arraigned Thursday. He was arrested in December and is now charged federally with maintaining a house for the purpose of drugs. Investigators say Frank Spring gave Forehand the starter plants for an indoor grow house in Nashville.
