Pot-dealing grandma's own son snitched on her for drugs

Pot-dealing grandma's own son snitched on her for drugs

Pot-dealing grandma's own son snitched on her for drugs

The story already raised plenty of eyebrows when 73-year-old Darlene Mayes of Vinita was arrested and accused of running one of the biggest, multi-state pot rings that Craig County authorities had ever seen.

But now, an affidavit in the case shows that her own son is the one that tipped off police.

Police state in the document that they interviewed Jerry Van Dorsey about a large amount of marijuana that was seized from him, and when they asked him where he got it, he told them he got it from his mother.

According to the document, Dorsey told police that he introduced his mother to the world of drug-dealing, but that she tried to cut him out of business because of his meth-use.

Police say he also told them that his mom cheated him out of a horse trailer and that he took the marijuana from her because it was the only way he knew to make up for the loss of the trailer.

  • When Judge James Robart of Seattle blocked his travel ban: His reactions to news reports about alleged Russian interference in the elections, and possible Trump business ties to Russia: He clearly didn’t like how coverage of his campaign was handled on the FOX NEWS show “The O’Reilly Factor” in early 2016: He used the official POTUS Twitter account to blast the media: In March, Trump Tweeted the claim that former President Obama had his “wires tapped” in Trump Tower:  He used the POTUS account to Tweet about FBI Director James Comey, literally while Comey was testifying before Congress: This POTUS Tweet was incorrect - 113 of those Jihadists were actually released by the Bush administration: Not accurate, the MS-13 gang has been around since the 1980s: His response to protesters who want him to release his tax returns:
  • The public can be going in style in the Big Apple. In a park amid New York City skyscrapers, a gem has emerged: a posh public bathroom that cost nearly $300,000.   It has freshly delivered flowers, imported tiles, classical music and artwork.   The free-of-charge facility was inspired by visits to the city's priciest hotels. It's open to everyone, even homeless New Yorkers.   On Thursday, officials cut bathroom tissue as the inaugural ribbon for the toilets housed in a landmarked Beaux-Arts building behind the New York Public Library. The toilets - divided between the women's and men's sides - are reopening after a two-month renovation.   The eye-popping elegance is a surprise in a city where public toilets are scarce and generally grungy.   The public luxury was funded privately by the Bryant Park Corp., a not-for-profit that manages the city-owned park.
  • A dog attack is fatal for its owner. Police say a pit bull mix killed its owner during an attack on the deck of the woman's Pennsylvania home.   Police say they were called to the home in Upper Macungie Township Thursday afternoon by neighbors who reported hearing screaming and a dog barking.   Police say the dog was still attacking the woman when officers arrived. They managed to put the dog in the home so responders could treat the woman's severe injuries.   She was taken to a hospital where she later died.   The name of the woman, who was in her 30s, is being withheld until family members are notified.   Police say the 3-year-old male pit bull-boxer mix was tranquilized on the scene and taken to the Lehigh County Humane Society where it will be euthanized.
  • The state of Arkansas executes its fourth inmate in eight days. A prison spokesman says condemned inmate Kenneth Williams shook for approximately 10 seconds about three minutes after his lethal injection began Thursday night. Williams was pronounced dead at 11:05 p.m.   Department of Correction spokesman Solomon Graves did not provide any details about the shaking. Media witnesses have not yet returned from the death chamber.   The state has now wrapped up an accelerated schedule of lethal injections that was set to beat the expiration date of one of the drugs.
  • A man is accused of pepper-spraying an autistic man. A former security guard faces charges after allegedly pepper-spraying the man who was eating free cookies at a Minnesota grocery store.   Timothy Knutsen of St. Paul is charged with two misdemeanor counts of fifth-degree assault and disorderly conduct for the March incident at a Cub Foods in Roseville.   An incident report cited by The St. Paul Pioneer Press says 53-year-old Knutsen was shopping when he saw a 20-year-old man eating 'a doughnut or a cookie' from the bakery and tried to alert employees. The complaint says Knutsen later followed the man, who is classified as a vulnerable adult, and sprayed him in the face with Mace.   Knutsen told police he didn't see the free cookies sign and sprayed the man accidentally. Knutsen's phone wasn't accepting calls Thursday. Attorney Jill Brisbois declined to comment on the charges.
