POLK COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Authorities arrested an 83-year-old woman who they say admitted to taking over her husband's business of dealing cocaine out of her home.

Wilma Johnson McQueen, 83, of Livingston, is charged with possession of a controlled substance and money laundering.

Lufkin DPS Agents, along with FBI, highway patrolman, and Polk County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at McQueen's home.

According to the report, officers came across 538.65 grams of cocaine inside the refrigerator, as well as two pistols, two rifles, two shotguns, and over $20,000 in cash during the search.
