An 87-year-old woman accused earlier this year of selling crack cocaine to an undercover deputy was sentenced last week to 18 months in state prison after a jury found her guilty of one count of selling cocaine.
Ola Mae Agee was arrested May 13 at a home in the 900 block of Martin Luther King Drive after an undercover Escambia County deputy bought a $20 piece of crack cocaine from her, according to an arrest report published in The Smoking Gun.
A surveillance video shows the undercover deputy knock on the back door of Agee's home, during an April 30 undercover sting.
She answered the door and after a brief conversation, she walked the undercover deputy to another room where she allegedly retrieved the crack after rummaging through the couch.
The arrest was part of a month-long investigation by Escambia County Sheriff's Office targeting drug dealing in Agee's Pensacola neighborhood.
Undercover officers had purchased crack cocaine from Agee on at least one occasion, according to the arrest report. This was confirmed by an audio tape recorded inside her home.
The Pensacola jury found Agee guilty after just 20 minutes of deliberation. The octogenarian, pictured here in a mug shot, was taken into custody following the October 26 verdict.
Agee is not the oldest person arrested for peddling crack. In 2004, The Smoking Gun reported, a 96-year-old North Carolina woman was arrested for selling the drug from her Kings Mountain home.
