Vinita, Okla. - 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.
