Woman, 96, Arrested for Cocaine Possession

by TChris

Sheriff's deputies in Cleveland County, North Carolina arrested a 96 year old woman when, during the execution of a search warrant at the house she shared with her son, the deputies found crack cocaine in her wheelchair. The search was prompted, at least in part, by an informant's assertion that the woman had hidden drugs in her prosthetic leg during an earlier search.

The woman, who has no criminal record, denied knowledge of the drugs.
