PHOENIX -- An Arizona man who was charged in connection with an ecstasy-manufacturing operation found inside a student apartment near Arizona State University has been sentenced.

Judge Harriett Chavez on Wednesday ordered Malik Hooper to serve 18 months of supervised probation and to complete 100 hours of community service. He must also pay a $3,660 fine.

The court says Hooper pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hooper was one of five people arrested after detectives with the Arizona Department of Public Safety uncovered the pill factory in December.

The bust stemmed from a traffic stop along Interstate 17. A search of the vehicle turned up a backpack that was loaded with ecstasy pills and cocaine.
