Who said old ladies are too naive to execute large-scale drug deals? It’s the people we expect the least that turn out to be the culprits of the criminal offense. An 81-year-old Danish woman traveling from Africa to Canada was arrested at Warsaw airport on suspicion of illegal possession of heroin worth over $515,000. Her retirement savings could have been covered if she wasn’t caught.
Customs officers at Frederic Chopin Airport decided to inspect the woman’s luggage after becoming suspicious of her itinerary and her restless behavior. During the examination, airport officials found packages with five kilograms of heroin hidden at the bottom of the suitcase.
Aleksandra Skrzyniarz, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office in Warsaw, said the woman, traveling from Malawi and Kenya through Doha and Warsaw, denied any criminal activity. According to her defense statement, family members had given her the suitcase with gifts for relatives in Canada. This grandma is too cool for society. Family gatherings must consist of a series of highs, and this granny has enough supply to leave everyone in a euphoric state.
She was locked up for three months and prosecutors began an investigation of her case. Under Polish law, she faces up to 15 years in prison for illegal possession of narcotics. She will be released at the ripe old age of 96. Will she make it out alive? Time will reveal all answers.
