73-Year-Old, Gun-Toting Grandmother Arrested As "The Kingpin"

on Tuesday, 17 April 2012. Posted in Marijuana, Breaking News

Marijuana Drug Operation

A 73-year-old, gun-toting grandmother was arrested with $300,000 and four pounds of marijuana. According to Daily Mail, authorities were shocked to find this woman was "the kingpin" of such an operation. The investigation had been ongoing for several months, but Oklahoma police just learned of this woman's involvement last week.

Local police chief claimed that when they discovered who was behind this large drug operation, "It was an extreme WOW moment." The woman was arrested Monday, and police found cash stashed all over her "idyllic" ranch home. Her son was also arrested that day, with a pound of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and over $2,000.

The confiscated money will be split up between various police organizations and used to fight the drug trade. The elderly woman has no prior arrest record.
