A Florida mail carrier and her boyfriend have been indicted after an investigation led to federal charges in a cocaine distribution conspiracy,

A grand jury handed down an indictment charging Nathasha Prieto, 33, and Angel Hernandez Coss, 37, both of Bradenton, with conspiring to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine.

According to court documents, Prieto, a United States Postal carrier, provided addresses on her postal route to Coss, who arranged for the shipment of packages containing kilograms of cocaine from Puerto Rico to those addresses.

If convicted on all counts, each faces a mandatory minimum term of 10 years, and up to, in federal prison.
