HAMMOND | A Chicago man entered a plea agreement Tuesday in a federal drug case. 

Alejandro Murillo pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, according to the plea agreement filed Tuesday. Murillo could face up to 20 years in prison. 

The charge stems from a Nov. 20, 2013 traffic stop on Interstate 65 near Lowell when officers found three packages of drugs under the hood of a 2002 BMW, according to an indictment. Murillo was the driver of the vehicle. 

The drugs, wrapped in plastic and covered with black pepper, tested positive for more than 1,000 grams of methamphetamine, according to the indictment.
