More guilty pleas in marijuana ring tied to Columbia killing

More people have pleaded guilty over their role in a large marijuana ring tied to a Columbia killing.

ABC 17 reports there were five more guilty pleas on Thursday in federal court. That includes Oregon native Craig Smith, Jr., a leader of the operation.

Smith pleaded guilty to distributing more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana, and money laundering.

Augustus Roberts was shot and killed during a home invasion on Lasso Circle in 2017. Authorities believe it was connected to the marijuana conspiracy.
