Jesse Pina Ontiveros, 27, has pleaded guilty to three felonies, in relation to a drug case from this spring.

The Itasca County Attorney said Monday that Ontiveros faces a plea agreement of seven years in prison.

According to the criminal complaint, police in Grand Rapids executed several search warrants in May, and found 45 grams of cocaine and about five pounds of marijuana.

The complaint said that the suspect's girlfriend told police he used to bring the drugs to Grand Rapids to sell.

Ontiveros pleaded to two controlled substance crimes and one felon in possession of a firearm crime.

Sentencing is set for December.
