FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man accused of distributing large quantities of methamphetamine in Fargo and in Sisseton, South Dakota, says he will plead guilty.

Roble Hernandez is charged in federal court with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. He faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years.

Authorities say Hernandez's residence in Fargo was being used as a "stash house" for an out-of-state drug trafficking organization. A woman who lived with Hernandez had allegedly stolen five pounds of meth and members of the cartel came to Fargo and assaulted her to gain information about the missing drugs.

Court documents show that meth was also distributed in Minnesota and Arizona.

A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
