(Scroll down for video) A priest found an unholy way to rack in some serious money, according to court proceedings in Connecticut.

The now suspended Catholic priest has pleaded not guilty to federal drug charges, which accused him of earning more than $300,000 from the sale of methamphetamines.

61-year-old Kevin Wallin, entered the plea on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Hartford, Connecticut. Four others have been charged in the alleged drug dealing operation that authorities say involved shipments of methamphetamines from California to Connecticut.

Wallin is the former pastor of St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He resigned citing health and personal problems. Later, he was suspended from public ministry by the Diocese of Bridgeport.

Federal prosecutors said that Wallin sold most of the drugs out of his apartment in Waterbury, Connecticut, from August to December, and some of the transactions involved an undercover agent.
