(WIBW) - A man from Washington State faces federal drug charges in Kansas.

34-year old Eusebio Guerrero-Sanchez of Mount Vernon, Wash., is charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute 1.8 kilograms of heroin.

Prosecutors say a Wichita Police officer stopped Guerrero-Sanchez on Sept. 8 for driving eastbound in the westbound lanes of West Highway 54.

According to the agent's report, the officer noted Guerrero-Sanchez had Washington license plates, two cell phones and no luggage. A check with the El Paso Intelligence Center told the officer that the car had entered the United States at California from Mexico on Sept. 5.

With the help of a drug dog, officers say they found heroin wrapped in black aluminum duct tape and hidden in the front passenger side fender of the vehicle.

If convicted, Guerrero-Sanchez faces a penalty of not less than 10 years and not more than life and a fine up to $4 million. The Wichita Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration investigated.
