A California woman is accused of smuggling a large amount of methamphetamine into Kansas.

According to U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister’s office, 46-year-old  Maria Alvarez-Buenrostro from Los Angeles was indicted on a federal charge of smuggling more than 60 pounds of methamphetamine. She is charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The Kansas Highway Patrol stopped Alvarez-Buenrostro for a traffic violation on I-70 near Hays in Ellis County. Troopers found 33 heat-sealed bags of meth hidden in a rear quarter panel and both rear doors of her Ford Explorer.

If convicted, she faces a penalty of not less than 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $4 million.
