L.A. grandmother sold heroin with grandkids: police
Yahoo & Reuters ^ | July 31, 2007 | Dan Whitcomb

A 39-year-old grandmother accused of selling heroin on the streets of a Los Angeles suburb with her 11-year-old granddaughter as a lookout has been arrested on drug and child endangerment charges, police said on Tuesday.

Undercover officers watched for two weeks as Martha Gutierrez Novas sold heroin at a bus stop in Long Beach, south of Los Angeles, clutching a brown and white Chihuahua and often with her granddaughter at her side, a police spokesman said.

"The granddaughter acted as a lookout, standing at the corner of the building looking, I assume, for police officers," said Sgt. Paul LeBaron, a Long Beach spokesman. "It's horrible. Absolutely horrible. I've never seen anything this blatant. She just didn't even care."

progressive grandmothers.

So this is what hillary was blabing about. It takes a village to raise a drug dealing grandmother.

She’s selling dope with her 11 year old granddaughter.. I’d put great grandma by age 44, at the outside. My guess is that in a day when grandma is out on the streets again, she makes sure her granddaughter starts watching Cops episodes, because she’s not a great lookout.

If her grand daughter follows tradition, she’ll be a great-grandma at 42.

It boggles the mind.

You know, this could be a math problem in future text books. Instead of "Jack bought five apples in a store. How many more apples did Jack need for a dozen?" we can replace that with "Mrs. Gutierrez Novas was a grandmother at age 39 and her only granddaughter was 11. At what age did Mrs. Gutierrez Novas become a grandmother?"

LeBaron said that Novas' immigration status was under investigation and that Child and Family Services officials were also probing the matter. He said Novas also sometimes sold drugs with her 4-year-old granddaughter present. Neither child was charged.

I have shady friends I can ask how much heroin costs, but even they, I bet, wouldn't know how much to pay for a grandkid.

When the invaders are becoming grannies at age 28, we have a BIG problem on our hands.

Being she is a “suspected” illegal, it would not be surprising if this uneducated fruitpicker sold the kids as prostitutes to her drug buyers. Nothing illegals do anymore is too despicable.
