(KSL News) Two men arrested last month in a major marijuana-growing operation in central Utah now face federal charges.

A grand jury has indicted Cesar Duran and Jose Rodriguez on charges of cultivating marijuana. It's a charge that carries a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years if they are convicted.

The two men were found near a marijuana-growing operation in Sanpete County, where agents found more than 25,000 marijuana plants and an elaborate growing operation.
