A 33-year-old man has been charged in federal court with conspiracy to manufacture and possess marijuana with intent to manufacture 1,000 or more marijuana plants.

Nghia Trong Nguyen was arrested Friday after recently returning to Lincoln from Vietnam. Police say Nguyen is the owner of four Lincoln houses where thousands of marijuana plants were seized in March.

In all, police say they found more than 8,000 pot plants at 11 Lincoln houses. Six men, including Nguyen, have been arrested in connection with the operation.

Nguyen was released from custody, but ordered to remain in Lancaster County.
