A 65-year-old Chicago woman was reportedly heavy in the streets.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Audrea Sanders was arrested on charges of selling cocaine out of her senior-living apartment in Cook County public housing.


Sanders was arrested last week and appeared in bond court Wednesday. The Golden Towers Senior Living Center resident was "charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance on public housing property and possession of a controlled substance. Sanders bail was set at $50,000," according to the Tribune.

Police said that they recovered scales and an undisclosed amount of cocaine during a search of Sanders' apartment. A 29-year-old man, Jeffery Williams, was also arrested. He was charged with criminal trespassing after he was found in Sanders' apartment, authorities said.


And get this: Sanders is the second Golden Towers resident to be charged with selling drugs. Seventy-one-year-old Eddie Cain was charged with "two counts of delivering a controlled substance on public housing property," according to the Tribune. Cain has been in jail since his arrest and is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 28.
