ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The man federal prosecutors describe as the common thread in multi-state indoor marijuana operation that resulted in guilty pleas from 15 defendants has also pleaded guilty.

Frank Spring made the plea to one count of conspiracy to manufacture more than a hundred marijuana plants this morning in federal court in Macon.  Prosecutors say Spring brought the operation to Lee County and while on probation asked Dean Slaymaker and Scott Holcomb to help him move the operation to Peachtree Street in Sasser.

They say after a grow house in Tallahassee was burglarized, he moved it to Jacksonville then to North Carolina. Spring will be sentenced sometime in the next 60 days. Under the agreement Spring will get a minimum of 10 years in prison without credit for the time he's already served.
