LAS VEGAS (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted a man named by authorities as a suspect in the drug ring kidnapping of a 6-year-old Nevada boy.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Gregory Brower said Wednesday
that no arraignment date was immediately set for Jose Luis Lopez-Buelna.

The 48-year-old Lopez-Buelna was indicted on a felony charge of being a deported alien found unlawfully in the United States.

He's being held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody following his release from state custody last week.

Lopez-Buelna had been arrested Oct. 17 by police investigating the abduction of 6-year-old Cole Puffinburger by two men posing as police officers.
