An Indiana pastor pleaded guilty to producing 100 tons of synthetic marijuana after using members of his congregation to run the massive $2.6 million drug ring.

Robert Jaynes Jr. of Irvington Bible Baptist Church in Indianapolis also admitted to committing fraud through the mislabeling of the controlled substance, according to his plea agreement obtained by the Indianapolis Star.

Kirk Parsons, the pastor’s brother-in-law and a church member, pleaded guilty to the same charges. Jaynes and Parsons were among 13 people from multiple states busted in the international drug ring.

“Individuals began to manufacture and traffic in smokable synthetic cannabinoid products, many times known on the street as ‘K2,’ ‘Spice,’ ‘Incense,’ ‘Potpourri,’ and ‘Herbal Sachet’ products,” according to the plea agreement obtained by the paper.
