DENVER (AP) - One of four men facing federal charges in connection with large-scale raids on medical marijuana businesses has indicated he wants to change his plea.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1vppdHn ) Hector Diaz has filed a “notice of disposition” motion, which typically means a plea deal has been reached.

Diaz was indicted on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering after federal agents raided more than a dozen medical marijuana stores and grows in 2013. Diaz, a Colombian citizen, was also charged with illegal weapon possession and making false statements to investigators. He pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say he worked to transfer money from a Colombian bank to an account for a shell metals company, eventually using the money to buy a building to grow and distribute marijuana.
