Elderly woman goes down for slanging some of that OKC Thunder
The face of the drug dealer in America changes everyday.
73-year old Darlene Mayes of Oklahoma had her home run up in by the feds after they got a tip that a lot of weed was being sold out of her home. Officers admit that they expected to find a good amount of weed, and they did, six pounds of it. But they also found guns and $277,000 in cash stashed throughout the house in trashbags and vacuum sealed bags as well. Granny had the trap booming!
"It was an extreme wow moment," says Vinita police chief Bobby Floyd. "We kept finding more cash and it was so surprising that it was just laying around. It was in closets, underneath the bed. But it wasn't really hidden."
Law enforcement believe this arrest will put a major dent in not only the Oklahoma drug trade but surrounding areas such as Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas.
Mayes faces a total of five criminal charges: possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, maintaining a dwelling where drugs are kept or sold, possession of a firearm in commission of a felony and failure to affix tax stamps.
That's messed up. Who snitched on Grandma? No word on what strand of weed Mayes was selling. At her age, it definitely had to be some OG. Perhaps she had her own strand, "Grandmamma Purp," with grey hairs even.
