WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A woman who tried to flush drug money down a cell block toilet has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for her role in a meth trafficking plot.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1ShPCQS ) that 26-year-old Marisela Ramirez was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to a charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in October.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says Ramirez had more than $3,500 in cash on her when she was taken into custody in 2013 but wasn’t successful in her attempts to get rid of it.

Court records say charges of mutilation of federal reserve notes and depredation to government property were dismissed as part of her plea deal.

Court records say Ramirez helped arrange for 16 pounds of meth to be driven from California to Kansas.
