MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man who drunkenly fired shots into a Meriden mosque on the night of the deadly November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris has admitted to marijuana possession charges.

The Hartford Courant reports (https://cour.at/2aU0kuy ) Ted Hakey Jr. pleaded guilty to charges of possession with intent to sell on Monday in Connecticut Superior Court.

Police say Hakey was arrested following a March 1 raid at his home.

Sgt. Christopher Fry says Meriden officers and federal agents seized more than 163 grams of marijuana from Hakey’s residence along with several rifles, handguns and ammunition. A sandwich bag that police believe contained psychedelic mushrooms was also found.

Hakey was sentenced to serve six months in prison for the mosque shooting in June. He will turn himself in to begin serving time on Monday.
