Elderly couple accused of selling pot Feb. 28, 2005 News Sentinel
DANVILLE, W.Va. - A 78-year-old grandmother faces drug charges and authorities are searching for her 72-year-old boyfriend after police found more than a pound of marijuana stashed in a freezer on the woman's property.
State Police troopers arrested Mollie Williams last week after responding to a domestic dispute between her granddaughter and the granddaughter's husband, who were arguing over drugs. Police learned that the man allegedly had bought marijuana from Williams, State Police Cpl. Larry O'Bryan said Monday.
Armed with a search warrant and a drug-sniffing dog, troopers went to Williams' residence. The dog led troopers to a freezer in an outbuilding where the marijuana, worth an estimated $4,000, was hidden under frozen meat and other food, O'Bryan said.
Williams was taken to jail and later released on $15,000 bond. Her live-in boyfriend, Jack White, who was recovering from heart bypass surgery, was allowed to turn himself in but failed to do so. He remained at large Monday.
"They appear to be the typical grandma and grandpa individuals. They seemed pretty sociable. However, they sell marijuana," O'Bryan said.
"You wouldn't generally suspect them in the usual lineup of drug dealers."
The granddaughter was charged with possession of marijuana and released on bond.
