A 74-year-old woman is accused of growing marijuana outside her LaPorte County home.

A retired Indiana state patrol trooper made the discovery while flying over the woman's home near New Carlisle, Ind.

Investigators said along with the plants outside, they also found a growing operation in her basement.
