PENSACOLA, Fla. – An 87-year-old woman was arrested Thursday after she was caught on tape selling crack cocaine to an undercover deputy.
And it’s not the first time the Pensacola woman has been busted for drugs.
Ola Mae Agee of Pensacola was arrested after the undercover officer bought a $20 piece of crack from her, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Ted Roy said. The incident occurred on April 30 at Agee’s home, the Sheriff’s Office said.A surveillance video of the sale shows the undercover officer knock on the back door of Agee’s home. Agee then answers the door and walks the officer to another room where she retrieves the crack after rummaging through the couch.
The undercover officer counts out $20, including pocket change, which he gives to Agee in exchange for the crack.
In addition to what was sold to the deputy, Agee can be seen in the video holding a small bag of crack cocaine. Roy did not know how much crack was in the bag, and he did not know if additional narcotics were recovered from Agee’s home.
But Thursday’s arrest wasn’t the first time Agee has been picked up in connection with drug-related charges.
Agee pleaded no contest in December 1996 to possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver. She served a two-year probation, which ended in July of 1998 when she was 75 years old.
Agee was again arrested in February of 1999 for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, but the charges against her were later dropped.
On Thursday afternoon, three people – who refused to identify themselves – sat in the front yard of Agee’s downtown home. They said they did not know where Agee was or when she would return.
Sheriff’s investigators anticipate additional drug-related arrests in connection with the sale drugs from Agee’s residence, Roy said. It is believed those additional suspects also sold crack at other houses in Escambia County, Roy said.
Family members took Agee to Escambia County Jail following her arrest. After Agee was processed, she was released on her own recognizance because of her age, Roy said.
