An 84-year-old Albuquerque woman has been indicted for drug trafficking.

Lillie Smith, who requires an oxygen tank to breathe, was recently indicted by a Bernalillo County grand jury for trafficking, conspiracy to commit trafficking, tampering with evidence and possession, according to KRQE-TV.

Deputies suspected that the woman's son, Nathan Jones, was running a small drug operation out of her home back in 2011. The sheriff's office says deputies found cocaine and marijuana on Smith and she tried to stash the drugs during the investigation.

Smith and her son were both arrested. It was not known if either of them has a lawyer.
