A Filipino woman and two others have been arrested for alleged involvement in a large-scale drug operation in Southern California in the United States.

Donnica Mae Rabulan, 31, was accused of sending illegal drugs such as methamphetamine to buyers in several countries including the Philippines, New Zealand and Poland. The Filipina was arrested along with her husband Michael Allen Goldberg and James Caleb Keuker, ABS-CBN News reported.

According to the US Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, the three suspects conspired and agreed with their alleged cohorts to distribute over 500 grams of a substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine. The alleged offense had begun no later than May 21 last year.

The investigation began in May when a shipping company found drugs in parcels bound for the Philippines that were delivered to them by Goldberg. Rabulan faces four counts of distributing methamphetamine in addition to the conspiracy charges filed against all three suspects.

If convicted, Rabulan and her alleged co-conspirators may face jail terms of 10 years to life in federal prison.
