Wichita, Kan. -- Two women from New Mexico have been indicted on charges of bringing more than 8 pounds of methamphetamine to Wichita.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Wichita says 37-year-old Annabell Romero and 43-year-old Pamela Y. Meier, both of Tucumcari, N.M., are charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and one count of traveling in interstate commerce in furtherance of drug trafficking.

A Sedgwick County Sheriff's deputy stopped the pair on Kellogg near 119th Street West back on February 28. Investigators found the methamphetamine in duct taped bundles inside four brown paper sacks that were hidden in the lining of the trunk of the car.

If convicted of all charges, they could face up to 15 years in federal prison and fines totaling over $10,000,000.
