Drug-Kingpin Granny Arrested In Okla.

April 17, 2012  | 

Authorities believe a 73-year-old Oklahoma grandmother is responsible for as much as 40% of the marijuana trafficking in the northeast section of the state.

When Craig County Sheriff's deputies arrested Darlene Mayes, they found 4 pounds of marijuana, two pistols and $221,550 in cash in a sack with the drugs. An additional $53,020 was located in the back seat of a vehicle, and Mayes had a substantial amount of cash on her person, reports the Tulsa World.

Deputies and Vinita Police officers raided Mayes' family farm at 6:45 a.m. on April 9. Mayes is a former Department of Human Services worker.

Depends are expensive!See what happens when the Government starts cutting back on benefits for Seniors. They just could't leave SSI alone. Now we have another demographic group to deal with.
