Acting U.S. Attorney Marietta Parker announced Thursday that a federal grand jury meeting in Topeka had returned an indictment against three men accused of possessing the pot.
Prosecutors allege that agents watched last month as the men picked up a shipment of cookies in Kansas City, Mo., and took it to the garage of a residence that Morales was renting in Kansas City, Kan.
A search of the cookies uncovered 230 pounds of pot that was packaged in 221 bundles.
There was no immediate response to e-mails the Associated Press sent Thursday night to the attorneys listed in court records as representing the men.
