A Phoenix man has changed his plea to guilty in a drug case.
Maricopa County Superior Court officials say Christopher Hustrulid pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to commit possession of dangerous drugs for sale and possession of equipment or chemicals to manufacture narcotic drugs.
His sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 27.
The 36-year-old Hustrulid was arrested in April after county sheriff's deputies served a search warrant at a Phoenix home.
Authorities say Hustrulid signed for a package containing more than 250 grams of Ecstasy.
Undercover detectives and U.S. Postal Inspectors raided the home after the delivery.
Besides finding an active meth lab, detectives reported discovering various drugs, about $7,000 and some counterfeit cash.
Hustrulid pleaded not guilty to drug possession, money laundering and other charges at his May arraignment.
