A multi-agency task force arrested an Albuquerque man today on federal firearm and drug charges.
Henry Felix, 49, is charged in a federal complaint with possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime; being a felon in possession of a firearm; and possession of heroin with intent to distribute.
The FBI Violent Crime Task Force (VCTF), comprised of investigators from the FBI, New Mexico State Police, Albuquerque Police Department and Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Felix after executing a search warrant of his residence in Albuquerque.
According to the federal complaint, a loaded, stolen firearm and approximately five ounces of heroin were located in the residence.
Felix had an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque today and was ordered detained pending a preliminary/detention hearing Wednesday.
The public is reminded that all defendants are considered innocent unless convicted in a court of law.
The VCTF primarily focuses on violent repeat offenders engaged in federal firearm or drug-related crimes.
