Brunswick man and grandma arrested with coke, pot and guns

Joseph Mincey and his grandmother Elnora Mincey were arrested Wednesday for numerous drug-related charges.

Police said a 76-year-old grandmother was working in cahoots with her grandson to sell cocaine. 

Glynn County Police Capt. Terry Wright said the woman was arrested Wednesday afternoon, along with her 27-year-old grandson, who officers allegedly caught in the act of delivering 2 ounces of cocaine to a local high school student.

Following his arrest in a shopping center on U.S. 17, police executed a search warrant of his home. There they found the grandma allegedly watching over still more cocaine, as well as nearly 2 pounds of marijuana, two handguns and lots of cash, Wright said.

Joseph Mincey remained in the county jail Thursday on numerous drug-related charges, including trafficking, possession and intent to distribute cocaine and pot, as well as possession of a handgun during the commission of a crime. The grandmother, Elnora Mincey, remained in the county jail Thursday on a charge of selling cocaine and being party to the crime of sale of cocaine.

In addition to Glynn County police, the arrests involved the FBI's Coastal Georgia Violent Gang Task Force, Glynn County School Police and McIntosh County sheriff's deputies, Wright said.
