An investigation into the sell of narcotics led to the arrest of a 73-year-old woman Wednesday afternoon, according to JWC Sheriff officials.
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 the JWC jail and charged with two counts of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance.
