TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A 41-year-old Topeka woman is charged with picking up a 7-pound package containing methamphetamine from a post office after law enforcement agents were tipped off the drugs would be there.

Prosecutors say Maria DeSocorro Martinez was arrested March 18 after going into the Topeka post office to pick up the package. The item had been under surveillance for two days after an informant told officers a shipment from California contained the drugs.

Martinez was charged in an indictment filed Wednesday with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. If convicted she could face a penalty of 10 years to life and a fine of up to $10 million.

Her attorney was not available for comment after hours Thursday.
