A Tulsa man pleaded guilty Wednesday to a federal smuggling charge, admitting that he ordered Xanax from China with the intention of distributing it to others. 

Tristan Charles Barlow, 21, admitted in his plea agreement that he was not registered to import controlled substances. In another plea document, he said he knew that the pills would be shipped from outside the United States and would not be declared to U.S. Customs. 

An affidavit filed March 27 says Barlow admitted on Feb. 22 that he had been sending money overseas to receive Xanax, Valium or other contraband items.
