 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A man and woman from Kansas City have pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute more than $2 million in methamphetamine in the Kansas City area.

Federal prosecutors say 28-year-old Allyssa Samm and 32-year-old Eric Looker pleaded guilty Thursday to being part of the conspiracy from February 2015 to February 2016.

Samm admitted she and a co-conspirator bought about a half-pound of meth a day for a year before she was arrested. Looker received methamphetamine from Samm and the co-conspirator to distribute in the area.

In several instances, Samm and Looker bought the drugs from a law enforcement confidential informant.

Prosecutors say about 82.7 kilograms of methamphetamine was distributed during the conspiracy.

Thirty-year-old Amanda Greenway, of Kansas City, pleaded guilty in April to her role in the conspiracy.
