ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Arizona man has pleaded guilty in New Mexico to a heroin trafficking charge and is facing up to a 20-year sentence in federal prison.

Prosecutors say 59-year-old David Mendez Bojorquez, of Phoenix, entered his plea Monday.

Mendez Bojorquez was arrested last Dec. 8 at a bus station in Albuquerque.

Federal drug agents and task force officers executed a federal search warrant on Mendez Bojorquez’ suitcase and say they found a package containing more than a kilogram of heroin.

Mendez Bojorquez was indicted and charged with possession of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of heroin.

Prosecutors say Mendez Bojorquez remains in federal custody pending his sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.
