ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An 84-year-old Albuquerque woman is facing drug trafficking and other charges.
Lillie Smith was indicted by a grand jury for trafficking, conspiracy to commit trafficking, tampering with evidence and possession.
"It's definitely not something you see everyday," said BCSO Sergeant Aaron Williamson.
Court documents show the charges stem from a warrant served at Smith's apartment back in 201.
At the time Smith was allowing her son, Nathan Jones to live with her.
Deputies suspected Jones was running a small drug operation out of the apartment.
"There were scales, money, narcotics things of that nature that we generally find with drug trafficking," Williamson said.
Neighbors told KRQE News 13 off camera Smith was kind to a fault allowing her son to deal drugs out of the apartment because she wanted someone to take care of her.
However, BCSO said she was not an innocent bystander.
Deputies said not only did she have cocaine and marijuana on her when they served the warrant but she also tried to pull one over on them.
"When detectives were on scene she did try to take the narcotics that were on her person out and stash them," said Williamson.
Smith's son was arrested in 2011 but she was not because of a medical condition but she wasn't off the hook either.
The district attorney's office filed charges and a grand jury returned an indictment in February.
Smith was arrested in April but bonded out of jail. According to online court records she pled guilty to to trafficking in the 90's.
Her next court appearance is in July.
