TULSA - A raid on a home in the small town of Stonewall, Oklahoma netted several pounds of marijuana, at least one firearm, and an 83-year-old suspect now dubbed the "Ganja Granny" by the media.
Local police got a tip that there was a lot of traffic in and out of small home in Stonewall, and some people suspected its resident, Patsey Maxwell, might be involved in the drug trade.
After a two-month investigation, the District 22 Drug Task Force had enough evidence to obtain warrants to search the house and arrest Maxwell.
Investigators say they found the marijuana, some of it packaged for distribution, and a small .22-caliber handgun in the raid conducted Wednesday.
Sheriff John Christian tells KRMG they confiscated 4 pounds, 11 ounces of marijuana.
The search also uncovered cash and drug paraphernalia.
Reportedly, the pot was high-quality stuff, possibly medical grade.
According to online court records, she faces two counts of distributing a controlled dangerous substance within 2,000 feet of a school, one count of possession of marijuana within 2,000 feet of a school, and two counts of unlawful use of a telecommunication device to facilitate a felony.
One count of using a firearm in the commission of a felony will be added due to the discovery of the handgun.
She bonded out the same day.
In 2012, Craig County authorities arrested Darlene Mayes, who was 72 at the time, claiming she was in charge of a massive, multi-state marijuana ring.
But though her son was convicted, a judge dismissed all the charges against Mayes about a year later.
