On Tuesday (Feb. 9) authorities in Orlando, Fla. along with the DEA, announced the arrest of a 10 people involved in a year-long drug investigation. Among those busted was a 74-year-old wheelchair-bound grandmother accused of selling heroin out of her house.
Rosa Leon-Perez belonged to a group of drug dealers who pushed heroin, crack, weed and pills, authorities said. The investigation, nicknamed “Deal on Wheels” resulted in the seizure of more than 200 grams of heroine last weekend, as well as guns and money.
Granny and her Central Florida drug network brought in an estimated $300,000 trafficking drugs in from Columbia. “This organization, we’re going to conservatively say, was moving about two kilos a month,” said DEA Asst. Special Agent, Jeffrey T. Walsh.
Leon-Perez is believed to be the main drug dealer in the squad. According to the Smoking Gun, she faces felony heroine tracking and conspiracy charges, and is being held in lieu of $650,000 bond.
