KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A 41-year-old Kansas City, Kansas, woman has pleaded guilty to being part of a methamphetamine ring that distributed the drug in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Federal prosecutors said Karen Ortega distributed methamphetamine out of a home where she lived with her three children.

Officers searching the home found about 20 pounds of methamphetamine, almost two pounds of heroin and about $230,000 in cash. They also recovered several firearms.

Ortega pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.
