A California woman has admitted to bringing 60 lbs. of methamphetamine through Kansas. 

Federal prosecutors say Maria Alvarez-Buenrostro, 46, pleaded guilty Monday to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. 

Kansas troopers stopped her car Feb. 12, 2019, in Ellis County for a lane violation. A trooper found the drugs in 33 heat-sealed bags hidden in rear quarter panels and in both rear doors. 
According to the plea agreement, Alvarez-Buenrostro admitted she was taking the drugs to a dealer to sell. 

She will be sentenced April 16. She is facing at least 10 years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $10 million.
