A Canal Winchester man pleaded guilty to conspiracy, and money laundering in a federal court on Friday.

During a warrant conducted at Totten’s house on December 6, 2013, investigators reported finding 10 plastic wrappers, each containing cocaine powder concealed in the basement. Investigators also reported finding cocaine and kilogram-sized wrappers with residue.
The four other people involved in the case have already pleaded guilty. They are as follows:
- Andre Broom, 47, Columbus
- Christafer L. Jackson, 31, Pickerington
- Donald A. Jordan, 51, Columbus
- Lawrence G. Beavers, 46, Springfield
Broom was sentenced on August 19 to 36 months in prison. The others are awaiting sentencing.
Totten forfeited the proceeds of the drug activity, according to the court.
