SCOTTSBORO, Ala. (WHNT) -- A Jackson County caregiver to an elderly woman is facing charges for possession of methamphetamines and crystal methamphetamines.

Through what Jackson County Sheriff Chuck Phillips calls 'good work' deputies got a tip Linda Spears Larson was using meth, while taking care of the elderly woman. "We were able to get a search warrant based on the information they had received and was able to arrest her last night," Sheriff Phillips says.

He says deputies found around six grams of meth inside a Scottsboro home. They say the elderly woman didn't show signs of abuse.

Sheriff Phillips says the woman Larson was caring for is her boyfriend's mother. He says Larson was arrested in the past by Jackson County Deputies, for the exact same charges she's facing now. "She was out on bond, and now she's arrested again, so she'll be held in our jail until a bond revocation hearing."

Deputies say she's being held without bond.
