A Mexican national was indicted Wednesday on federal charges of heroin possession with the intent to distribute.

Julio Cesar Montiel-Posada, 18, was caught Nov. 30 trying to pass through the Deconcini Port of Entry in Nogales with approximately 1.28 kilograms of heroin — nearly 3 pounds — taped to his buttocks, according to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court.

Montiel-Posada told customs officials he was going to be paid $900 to cross into the United States with the heroin and then he would be contacted with further instructions.
Montiel is set to be arraigned Dec. 31. If convicted he would face a minimum of 10 years in prison.
