Police in Nuremberg on Friday said they have arrested an 81-year-old woman for dealing heroin with her son – supposedly because her pension wasn’t enough to make ends meet.

The disabled woman is accused of buying up to 500 grammes of the drug on several occasions since July 2008 before selling it to her customers. The authorities believe she made tens of thousands of euros this way, working with her 53-year-old son.

“According to her, she lived from this income because her small pension wasn’t enough,” police said in a statement.

Her son was arrested last September following an investigation into the drug dealing of a 63-year-old man from Rhineland-Palatinate. But police only recently had enough evidence to take the elderly lady into custody as well.
