ALBUQUERQUE, NM (March 2, 2016) – An Indianapolis man pleaded guilty Monday to a methamphetamine trafficking charge in federal court in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Rashad Travon Woods, 28, was arrested at an Amtrak Train Station in Albuquerque on October 30, 2015 after the DEA seized 2.4 kilograms (5.28 pounds) of meth from him during an interdiction investigation.

The methamphetamine was concealed in his clothes and in his backpack. He was indicted on the same charge on November 17.

During Monday’s proceedings, Woods pled guilty to the indictment, and he remains in custody pending a sentencing hearing which has yet to be scheduled.

Under the terms of his plea agreement, Woods will be sentenced to 132 months in federal prison followed by a term of supervised release to be determined by the court.
