PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man who pleaded guilty in a drug case has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say 36-year-old Christopher Hustrulid also was sentenced Thursday to four years of supervised probation after his prison term.

Hustrulid pleaded guilty last month to possession of equipment or chemicals to manufacture narcotic drugs and conspiracy to commit possession of dangerous drugs for sale.

He was arrested in April along with his girlfriend after county sheriff’s deputies served a search warrant at their 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.
