GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — An Otsego woman is facing federal charges after investigators claim they discovered roughly 200 grams of methamphetamine in a package in her post office box.

Magdalena Stevenson was arrested Oct. 9 after investigators conducted a controlled delivery of the package and she came to the post office and picked it up, according to federal court documents.

She has been charged with use of a communications facility in facilitating the possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of meth.

According to the criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, the package originated in California, where Stevenson has a lengthy criminal history.  The complaint also says that she admitted to officers that she was a meth dealer and that she knew the package contained it.

The package was initially labeled suspicious by the Post Office Oct. 8, and a search warrant was obtained after K-9 units detected drugs inside it.
