The final defendant in the state's largest methamphetamine seizure pleaded guilty on Monday.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Peter Martin, 35, pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute approximately 191 pounds of meth. Martin and his co-conspirators, Fernando Ramos-Meza, Javier Lopez-Lopez and Juan Daniel Valdez-Mendoza, were indicted in November.

Court documents say law enforcement officers executed a search warrant on Sept. 11, 2018 in north Minneapolis. During the search of Ramos-Meza's home, officers found several items of contraband, including a 12-gauge sawed-off pump shotgun and about 191 pounds of methamphetamine.

Martin's sentencing is set for Jan. 14, 2020.
