EUGENE, OR (AP) -

A former Eugene Fire Department captain, his wife and their son have been indicted on marijuana and money laundering charges.

The Register-Guard reports Kenneth Hern, Kathleen Hern and Steven Hern have been charged with unlawful delivery of marijuana for "consideration" and laundering a monetary instrument.

All of them pleaded not guilty in November and are expected to return to court in February.

Kenneth Hern, who retired from the fire department in 2003, also faces charges in Maryland including importing and possessing marijuana with intent to distribute.

Steven Hern is employed in the public works department for the city of Eugene. A spokesman for the department says Hern is on administrative leave.
