WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - An Oklahoma man who Wichita police caught with more than a pound of heroin has pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge.

A federal prosecutor says Nestor Duenas-Vazquez of Glenpool, Oklahoma, pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession with intent to distribute.

A Wichita police officer on June 26 found 496 grams of heroin hidden in a detergent bucket in the trunk of a car during a traffic stop. Duenas-Vazquez was a passenger in the car and was traveling to Oklahoma from Denver.

Duenas-Vazquez faces up to 40 years in federal prison when he is sentenced in January.

Another defendant convicted in the case is scheduled for sentencing in December.
