Gulfport -

A man suspected of picking up packages of the drug Ecstasy mailed from China to a D'Iberville home has filed a notice that he intends to plead guilty.
   
Authorities say Phung Nguyen is accused of picking up the packages. The amount reportedly seized from four shipments was about 2 kilos, or 4.4 pounds.
   
Court records say Nguyen has been held with no bond since his arrest March 7, when he told federal agents the substance is "Chinese medicine" intended for human consumption.
   
Nguyen was indicted April 16. He had pleaded not guilty.
   
Change of plea hearing is July 31 in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.
