    Ronnie Music Jr., who won $3 million in the Georgia lottery last year, pleaded guilty to using his prize to invest in a crystal meth ring.

    A $3 million lottery winner pleaded guilty to using his prize to invest in a crystal meth ring, NBC News reported.

    Ronnie Music Jr., 45, bought the drugs with his 2015 winnings and wanted to supply them to others who would resell them at a profit, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of Georgia.

    Agents recovered more than $1 million worth of methamphetamine, along with firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition and $600,000 in cash.

    He will be sentenced after the state's probation office conducts a pre-sentence investigation.
