NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say a man has admitted to his role in a scheme to traffic an illegal synthetic drug to the state from China.

The Home News Tribune reports (https://mycj.co/2fenlyd ) prosecutors say Thomas Seymore pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday to conspiring to distribute ethylone.

Authorities say the 38-year-old Carteret man conspired with others in June 2014 to possess with the intent to distribute about 4 kilograms of ethylone, which had been shipped to Teaneck.

Ethylone stimulates the nervous system. It can cause hallucinogenic effects.

Seymore had been indicted in April. He faces up to two decades in prison at his February sentencing, as well as a fine of up to $1 million.
