A 72-year-old woman has been charged with multiple crimes after an anonymous complaint concerning illegal drug activity.

Mary Scales was arrested Tuesday after officials discovered more than two pounds of marijuana in her bedroom, along with a teddy bear stuffed with $14,754 in cash.

Also found in Scales' bedroom at her Sharp Avenue home in east Nashville was a .45 caliber pistol that was reported stolen last year.

Scales was charged with possession of marijuana for resale, unlawful gun possession in the commission of a dangerous felony, theft and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

She was booked into the Metro jail and has since been released on $3,000 bond.

Scales' first court appearance is scheduled for April 11.
