Barbara Ann Sims, 60, (right) had been free on bond following her arrest in February.
She was originally brought into custody after tactical officers and federal agents got a tip that she was making "cheese" heroin at her home.
They raided the residence and found what they said was 9 ounces of Mexican black tar heroin.
They also got cheese heroin and materials to make more of it with an estimated street value of more than $33,000, a warrant stated.
A detention hearing will be held Thursday for Sims, according to acting U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks of the Northern District of Texas.
If convicted, Sims faces a prison term of five to 40 years and a $2 million fine.
She may also have to forfeit her home to the government, if convicted, Jacks said.
