KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A former Kansas City, Missouri, postal carrier has been ordered to spend three years in federal prison for her role in distributing PCP.

Sixty-five-year-old Carol Barfield was sentenced Thursday in Kansas City, where she pleaded guilty last November to conspiring to distribute the drug. A co-defendant, 57-year-old Michael Garrett of Victorville, California, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to the drug-trafficking conspiracy and using the mail to distribute PCP.

Authorities say that as part of the plot from November 2015 to March of last year, Garrett mailed bottles of the drug to addresses on Barfield’s postal route and then had her deliver them to others in the area.

In exchange, Barfield said Garrett bought her clothes, fixed her car and gave her money.
