ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Tucumcari man has pleaded guilty to a methamphetamine trafficking charge and could be facing more than two years in prison.

Prosecutors say that under terms of a plea agreement, 27-year-old Alexander Page will be sentenced to up to 30 months in federal prison followed by a term of supervised release to be determined by the court.

His sentencing hearing hasn’t been scheduled.

Page and three co-defendants were arrested in November 2013 on a six-count indictment charging them with trafficking methamphetamine in New Mexico’s Curry, Cibola and Socorro counties .

Page was stopped for driving 85 mph in a 35 mph zone near Sorocco on Nov. 7, 2012.

During a search of Page’s vehicle, a Socorro County Sheriff’s deputy reported finding nearly 1,260 grams of methamphetamine in a hidden compartment.
