Three men charged in connection with the second-largest marijuana bust in Maine history have been found guilty by a federal jury. Jurors on Friday found Malcolm French, of Enfield, and Rodney Russell, of South Thomaston, guilty of conspiracy, manufacturing drugs and other charges. Kendall Chase, of Bradford, was convicted of conspiracy.

State police said a raid in September 2009 yielded 3,000 plants valued at an estimated $9 million. (AP)
