Nancy Bell is not your typical grandma. Just ask the feds and the sheriff’s department in Lee County, Va.

Authorities say the 64-year-old Tennessee grandmother, who suffers from heart ailments, and her daughter Iris Gibson, 45, and granddaughter Misty Parker, 23, illegally trafficked in OxyContin. The powerful narcotic painkiller sometimes is referred to as “hillbilly heroin.”
