A man arrested during a raid that uncovered a homemade bomb is likely to be released from jail on Thursday.
James Seckold's home on McPherson Street was searched by Wodonga police officers on May 31.
They uncovered a large amount of drugs including ice, cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, weapons, stolen property, ammunition and the explosive device.
Seckold's housemate, James Warren, took the rap for the most serious charges, including for manufacturing the bomb.
He received a six month jail term earlier this month.
Seckold, 35, on Wednesday admitted to charges relating to marijuana, ice and meth possession, ammunition possession, and having various weapons including an imitation gun, nunchucks, a cattle prod and knives.
Seckold had been charged with manufacturing the bomb, but denied any involvement.
The charges were dropped on Wednesday.
Lawyer Michelle Matthews said her client had been staying out of trouble, but things took a turn for the worse.
"Mr Seckold has somewhat lost the plot," she said.

He has stayed in custody since his arrest and Ms Matthews said he "looks a lot healthier".
"The period of incarceration has probably done him the world of good in terms of staying away from drugs," she said.
"I think this is a turning point in Mr Seckold's life."
He also faced charges relating to drug driving and speeding near Benalla.
Police tried to pull over his car on the Midland Highway at Swanpool on May 17 but Seckold sped off, reaching speeds of 133km/h.
He tested positive to ice and MDMA when he eventually stopped, and a folding knife was found in his wallet.
The 35-year-old was also charged after making threats towards a boy in March.
Magistrate John Murphy heard he had already spent 108 days in custody.
"It looks a bit better for you," he said after 24 charges were dropped.
The magistrate said it was unlikely Seckold would receive further prison time when he is sentenced on Thursday.
He is likely to be released and ordered to complete a community corrections order.
