Indiana police arrest woman after pot mailed to ‘Grandma Stinker’

AURORA, Indiana — A woman has been arrested on drug charges after police say she was receiving packages of pot from her son in California, addressed to “Grandma Stinker.”

Debra Ferguson, 58, is being held in the Dearborn County Jail on multiple charges, including dealing in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, conspiracy to deal marijuana and dealing in marijuana, all felonies, according to eaglecountryonline.com.

Her son, Eric Anderson of Yuba County, California, also is facing multiple drug-related charges, WLWT Channel 5 reports. An arrest warrant has been issued for Anderson.

WXIX Channel 19 says police received a tip that Ferguson was receiving regular shipments of marijuana from her son.

“Sometimes it takes tips from quite a few people, and for the information to come in and kind of like putting a puzzle together,” Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor Lynn Deddens tells WLWT.

Aurora Police Chief Josh Daugherty tells WXIX that a search warrant conducted at Ferguson’s home revealed “numerous narcotic prescription medications packaged for delivery along with multiple packages of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, packaging supplies, cell phones and an undisclosed amount of cash.”

WLWT reports Ferguson admitted to police receiving the marijuana packages from her son and sending him cash.

Aurora is located in southeast Indiana along the Ohio River, about 30 miles west of Cincinnati.
