ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Indiana man has pleaded guilty to a methamphetamine trafficking charge in New Mexico.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Rashad Travon Woods, of Indianapolis, entered into a plea agreement Monday.

They say he’ll be sentenced to 11 years in federal prison followed by a term of supervised release to be determined by the court.

Woods was arrested after federal drug agents seized more than 5 pounds of methamphetamine from him during an investigation at an Albuquerque train station on Oct. 30, 2015.

Authorities say the methamphetamine was concealed in clothes in Woods’ backpack.

Woods was indicted last November in the case.

Prosecutors say Woods remains in custody pending a sentencing hearing which has yet to be scheduled.
