(Tulsa-AP) -- A federal prosecutor in Tulsa believes a Los Angeles man could get life in prison after being convicted of conspiring to possess liquid P-C-P.

Malcolme Derome McGee was arrested in July at a Tulsa motel where he went to pick up a large quantity of the drug.

Known as ``angel dust,'' the nearly three kilograms of the drug is estimated to have been worth more than eleven (m) million dollars.

McGee allegedly put the drug in a woman's travel bag in Los Angeles before she boarded a bus headed for Washington, D-C.

The woman was arrested at a Tulsa bus station, then had seven telephone conversations with McGee that were monitored by authorities. She told McGee that she had been kicked off the bus because of an odor coming from her bag.

McGee was arrested after flying to Tulsa to pick up the drug.
