BRUNSWICK, Ga. — A Georgia man could face life in prison after he invested part of his $3 million lottery winnings in a crystal meth ring, reports CBS affiliate WJAX.

Agents seized more than $1 million of meth, firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, multiple cars and $600,000 in cash as part of the case.

Music pleaded guilty to federal drug and gun charges.
