Norfolk, Va. - A mother accused of making meth - whose own daughter reported her to police - is scheduled to be in court today.

The Norfolk mother is scheduled to enter a plea later this morning.

Officers arrested 56-year-old Joan Noble in August.

She's charged with several felonies, including manufacturing methamphetamines.

On August 4, HAZMAT crews surrounded Noble`s Bayview home.
