A Waianae woman is pleading guilty in a federal case involving a package sent from California to Hawaii containing about six pounds of crystal meth.

Vyra Kaopua pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy with intent to possess and distribute methamphetamine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Beverly Sameshima says the crystal meth involved has a street value of $108,000 to $138,000.

A criminal complaint says FedEx security intercepted the Waianae-bound package of drugs in April.

The complaint says a Drug Enforcement Administration agent posing as a FedEx deliveryman took the package to the Waianae address, where Kaopua signed for it.

The complaint says Kaopua then helped agents arrest the man she was to deliver the drugs to. She told agents it was the third drug parcel she received.
