Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A plea agreement has been reached to settle charges stemming from a major drug bust in Rochester earlier this year.

33-year-old Roberto Nieves today entered a guilty plea to a first-degree drug possession charge. Under the plea deal, another first-degree drug charge will be dismissed. The agreement calls for a recommended sentence of just under five years in prison.

Nieves was arrested in February after investigators with the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at his home in the 3700 block of Kenosha Drive Northwest and found nearly 7 1/2 pounds of cocaine inside the safe located in the downstairs workout room. The criminal complaint says the investigators also found more than $55,000 in cash during a search of the home's master bedroom, along with digital scales and packaging material.

A sentencing hearing for Nieves has yet to be scheduled.
