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.
