article imageDrug sting in Florida nets 87-year-old grandmother

By Kay Mathews     May 15, 2010 in Crime
A woman who "may be the oldest drug dealer in Florida's history" was videotaped allegedly selling $20 worth of crack to an undercover police officer. After being processed at the jail, the grandmother was released on her own recognizance.
Ola Mae Agee, 87, was caught on tape allegedly selling crack cocaine to an undercover investigator. FOX10tv reports that Sergeant Ted Roy, with the Escambia County Sheriff's Office, said, “You never know who's knocking at your door. We got video cameras up there, we're not stopping at her. We're moving on and hopefully we'll quit seeing 87-year-olds selling crack. But nothing surprises us anymore.”
However, Agee’s longtime neighbor, Edna Hughes, was surprised. Hughes indicated to reporters that she did not know what was going on next door “until Agee was booked in jail.”
This is not Agee’s first drug arrest. In 1996, at the age of 73, she was arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver. Agee pleaded no contest and served a two-year probation. Agee was arrested again in 1999 for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, but the charges stemming from that arrest were dropped.
The May 14 arrest involved Agee allegedly selling $20 worth of crack to an undercover police officer. The incident itself occurred on April 30 and was videotaped. The video shows the undercover officer giving Agee a total of twenty dollars, including bills and pocket change. Agee then gives the officer the crack which she had retrieved from her couch, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
Due to her age, after Agee was processed at the Escambia County Jail, she was released on her own recognizance and “went home with family members.”
According to NBC Miami, “Ola Mae Agee may be the oldest drug dealer in Florida’s history.”
