HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. — A California man faces multiple drug charges after being caught with a large amount of fentanyl.

On Monday, an Indiana State Trooper noticed a red Chevrolet car following another car too closely in the center lane of I-70 near Greenfield.

The trooper stopped the car and identified the driver as 39-year-old Felix Becerra-Aguilera, of California.

A search of the car turned up 15.8 pounds of what are believed to be Fentanyl-laced pills and 4.4 pounds of pure Fentanyl hidden under the rear passenger seat.

Becerra-Aguilera was arrested and taken to the Hancock County Jail, where he was being held Tuesday on a $1,000,000 bond.

He faces charges of dealing in a narcotic drug, possession of a narcotic drug, and possession of cocaine.

A jury trial is set for March 2022.
