ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A South Georgia man accused of running an underground marijuana grow operation in Decatur County pleaded guilty Monday afternoon in Federal Court in Albany.

Daniel Barnard and Tisha Fowler were to begin trial Monday on a 12 count indictment. Barnard pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute while the charges against Fowler were dismissed.

Prosecutors say Barnard grew more than 100 marijuana plants in a facility hidden under a horse barn on his property near Bainbridge.

He'll be sentenced later. In the indictment federal prosecutors asked to seize more than 100 acres of property, 60 thousand dollars in cash, and 20 guns.
