10/06/2017

(KAIR)--A Leavenworth County resident is among three charged in federal court following the discovery of what U.S. Attorney Tom Beall says was 20 pounds of methamphetamine.

The seizure was made at a house in Kansas City, Kansas.

Charged Thursday with one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine was 53-year-old Basehor resident Sheila Best.

She was joined by two other defendants, both from Kansas City, Kansas, Karen Ortega and Marlon Gutierrez, in being charged with the crime.

According to Beall, a search warrant was served at a house in KCK where the meth, more than a pound of heroin, and more than $23,000 in cash, were allegedly found.

Each defendant is facing up to ten years in prison and a fine up to $10 million.
