SAN JOSE -- A San Jose couple has been indicted in federal court after agents found a meth-trafficking operation inside their home behind Oak Hill Cemetery earlier this month, though the husband is still being sought after evading arrest, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

Maria Anay Castaneda-Aleman and Emmanuel Navarro Gallegos, who also goes by Armando Roberto Espino, were indicted by a federal grand jury this week on charges of conspiracy and methamphetamine possession with intent to distribute. Castaneda-Aleman was also charged with maintaining drug-involved premises. They face up to life in prison if convicted.

Agents with Homeland Security Investigations working with the San Jose Police Department were alerted to the couple's home on Plateau Drive after their landlord found drugs on the property and evicted them.

According to a criminal complaint, searches of the home turned up 90 pounds of methamphetamine hidden beneath the stairwells as well as a respirator and ventilator they believe was used during production of the drug and a money counter and ledgers that contained records of purported drug transactions.

Castaneda-Aleman was arrested May 3, the day of the initial search. Agents returned the next day after getting a tip that Gallegos had been to the home, but he eluded capture and remains at large. The complaint states that the couple have three children. Their custody status was not immediately known.
