An unemployed Christchurch man pleaded guilty to four charges of importing methamphetamine and ecstasy by mail during May and June 2016.
Christopher William Tett, 33, admitted importing drugs through the International Mail Centre at Auckland Airport, in the Christchurch District Court.
The Crown said a package of ecstasy imported into New Zealand from the Netherlands, to be delivered to an address in Avonside, was intercepted on May 3, 2016, and another on June 16.
On May 11 and June 21, packages of methamphetamine from United States, for the same address, were intercepted.
Tett told police another person had ordered the drugs, and he had been pressured by the Head Hunters gang.
Tett was remanded for sentencing by a video link to the North Island on July 12.
Judge Stephen O’Driscoll asked for a pre-sentence report and a report to assess Tett’s suitability for a home detention sentence.
