Andrea Flores, a 73-year-old Texas woman, was arrested Wednesday after law enforcement officials walked in on her weighing and packaging cocaine while conducting a drug raid.
Flores, 73, was charged with two counts of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.
The 73-year-old drug dealer was detained while Jim Wells Country Sheriff’s officers were serving a narcotics warrant at her home in Alice, Texas.
Deputies executed a narcotic warrant at the residence of Andrea Flores on the 1700 block of Carmen Street. To the surprise of deputies and investigators Flores was in her bedroom watching television as she packaged the narcotics.
“She was actually caught in processing and packaging the items,” said JWC Sheriff Daniel Bueno. “This goes to show that when it comes to a criminal element anyone can be called a suspect.”
Agents searched Flores’ residence and seized 40 grams of synthetic marijuana, approximately eight grams of cocaine, approximately 100 pills in a pillbox-like container, and drug paraphernalia. According to sheriff officials, Flores was arrested in the 1990s for narcotics.
Flores was taken to county jail and charged with two counts of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance.
On Friday, September 15, Flores’ name was absent from the list of current inmates at the Jim Wells County jail.
