ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Indiana man has been sentenced to 11 years in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking in New Mexico.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Rashad Travon Woods, of Indianapolis, also was sentenced Wednesday to five years of supervised release after his prison term.

Woods was arrested last October after federal drug agents seized more than five pounds of methamphetamine from him at a train station in Albuquerque.

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

Woods was indicted last November and pleaded guilty in the case four months ago.
