Six people were charged Friday in connection with a $1 million pot operation.

The arrests and charges against the six stem from a bust Tuesday at a building in the 4400 block of West Jefferson in Detroit where an elaborate marijuana growth operation was discovered. The bust led to the confiscation of more than 1,000 plants allegedly connected to a major marijuana operation, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said.

Those charged are: Cotea Jones, 53; Jeanne Walsh, 37; Curtis Williams, 36;  Travis Davison, 27; Jabari Currie, 31; and James Frazier, 32, all of Detroit.

 All of the defendants were charged with controlled substance — delivery and manufacture of 45 kilograms or more of marijuana/or synthetic equivalent or 200 or more plants. The charge is a felony with a penalty of up to 15 years in prison.

Jones, Williams, Davison and Frazier also were charged with conspiracy to commit controlled substance-delivery/manufacture of 45 kilograms or more of marijuana/synthetic equivalent or 200 or more plants. That charge also is a felony with a 15 year maximum penalty.

The defendants were arraigned in 36th District Court and all received $15,000  personal bonds. A probable cause conference is scheduled for the defendants  at 8:30 a.m. June 11 and a preliminary examination at 9 a.m. June 18.
