ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A New York man has pleaded guilty to a marijuana trafficking charge in New Mexico and could be facing up to 40 years in federal prison.

Prosecutors say 50-year-old Gary Anthony Harris, of Carle Place, N.Y., entered his plea Tuesday.

He and another New York man were charged last August in a criminal complaint with conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

New Mexico authorities say they found more than 1,100 pounds of marijuana in a commercial vehicle during a July 2011 inspection and an investigation linked Harris to some of the drug load headed to New York.

Harris pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Harris‘ sentencing hearing hasn’t been scheduled yet, but prosecutors say he’s facing at least five years in federal prison and up to 40 years.
