Kansas and federal investigators seized more than 15 pounds of methamphetamine and heroin last week, charging two people in the process.

Mitzi Nunez-Zuniga and Juan Manuel Navarette-Robles were in custody Saturday, each charged in federal court with possessing meth with intent to distribute the drug.

Authorities charged them Tuesday, one day after a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper found plastic bags containing substances that tested positive for meth and heroin in the trunk of a Dodge Avenger bearing Colorado tags that Nunez-Zuniga had driven from Aurora, according to federal court records.

Investigators arrested Navarette-Robles after the drugs had been delivered to the garage of a home near the intersection of Wood Avenue and 50th Court in Kansas City, Kan., according to federal court records.

If convicted, each defendant would face at least 10 years in federal prison.
