SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) -- The former owner of a South Lake Tahoe medical marijuana dispensary has been indicted on drug charges.

A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted Gino DiMatteo on charges of conspiracy to manufacture at least 1,000 marijuana plants, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and manufacturing at least 100 marijuana plants.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/10moSlJ ) that court documents allege DeMatteo committed the crimes after being convicted of felony conspiracy to distribute marijuana in New York in 2002.

His attorney, Robert Woelfel, didn't immediately return a call for comment.

The 43-year-old DeMatteo remained in custody at the Sacramento, Calif., jail.

DeMatteo's City of Angels II collective closed this summer after his landlord sought his ouster and city officials would not allow him to move his operation.
