Meet A Gangsta’s Favorite Grandma: Ola Mae Robinson
WHISTLER, Ala. (WALA) – An elderly woman is back in Metro Jail on drug charges for the second time this year. She was busted after Prichard Police served a search warrant at her home on Leeds Avenue.
Most elderly people are known for sharing wisdom, but Prichard Police said 81-year-old Ola Mae Robinson is known for doling out crack cocaine.
Chief Jimmie Gardner said, “Our young folks and others are being harmed by the activities. If you are selling it to them, you are just another criminal, regardless of your age or situation.”
Robinson has an arrest history dating back to 1988 that is mainly drug charges. This past June she was charged with manufacturing and selling crack cocaine from her home on Leeds Avenue. Now, she is jailed on similar charges.
“Also, she’s been dealing in pills. She did have prescription drugs. She was selling Morphine. We have gotten Lortabs before, but yesterday we got Morphine.”
“The traffic there just never changed. Blacks and whites, males, females, even older individuals coming in and out, driving up for a very short periods and come back out.”
The news reporter asked about her arrest “You don’t sell crack cocaine?” Ola Mae said:
“Who? No! I don’t have time for no crack cocaine,” said Ola Mae.
She claims she’s no crack dealer. Ola Mae don’t know what those news reporters are talking about:
“Wish I was,” she said, “Cause then I’d have money.”
But Prichard Police say she is getting plenty of money selling drugs in the neighborhood, and it’s not her first arrest for doing so. Just this past June, she was picked up on possession and distribution charges.
“Police say you haven’t learned your lesson,” said Ramey.
“Learned me a lesson,” Ola Mae responded. “Tell ‘em they need to learn one.”
Today, police executed a search warrant in her Prichard home and once again, investigators say they found quite a bit of crack cocaine and pills.
“How do you explain all the drugs in your house?” Andrea asked Ole Mae as she was being taken into custody.
“It wasn’t mine! Til they found me I was sitting up in my chair noddin!” explained the 80 year old.
Prichard’s Police Chief Jimmie Gardner says it’s never easy to arrest an elderly person,
Age ain’t nothing but a number to Ola Mae:
“All I want to do is take my behind and sit it down somewhere,” she said.
She obviously doesn’t have it all. But this is a result of having a bunch of worthless kids who don’t take care of you when you get older. Somebody come get their grandma please!! This is ridiculous
