A Toronto man pleaded guilty to conspiracy to import the drug Ecstasy from Canada to the United States, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Monday.

Richard Dixon, 35, faces up to 20 years in prison and $1 million in fines for trying to traffic the drugs, which also contained the substance known as “bath salts,” authorities said.

Dixon was found in September with 34,000 Ecstasy pills in duct-taped bundles near the international border in Lewiston, according to officials.

The drugs were destined for Atlanta, authorities said.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 28.
