When I saw this one, I didn’t know what to think. We all have our own stereotypical ideas of what a drug dealer looks like. But with the arrest of eighty-seven year old Ola Mae Agee, that stereotype has been completely and utterly shattered.
On Thursday, May 13, Police arrested the eighty-seven year old Pensacola, Florida, resident and charged her with selling cocaine after undercover sheriff’s deputies video-taped her selling a twenty dollar piece of crack.
Ola Mae got them jumbos y’all.
At first I approached this news item as the story of an elderly lady who was forced to do the unthinkable just to provide herself with the barest necessities, but then I found out that when she was seventy-three, she was charged with the same crime and served two years on probation.
That makes her a habitual offender. Ola Mae is a straight hustla’, baby!
But in all fairness, the sheriff’s department also speculates that others may also be dealing drugs from the house. So, I would like to believe that perhaps she was somehow being manipulated by others due to her old age. Or at least, I certainly hope so.
