[Clarion Ledger] A 62-year-old woman found Wednesday with 30 pounds of marijuana at her Jackson home told authorities it was for medical use.
But Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin said he is not buying Millie Steverson’s claim.
“I understand she smokes the drugs to help her glaucoma. By the time she got through smoking all of that, she would have X-ray vision,” McMillin joked.
Steverson was arrested at 2665 Milo Ave. following a Sheriff’s Department investigation prompted by a tip, McMillin said.
Deputies seized the marijuana along with crack cocaine, ecstasy pills and a handgun inside the home and a stolen 2008 Lexus from the back yard. The drugs have a street value of about $200,000.
McMillin said other drug paraphernalia inside would suggest Steverson was trafficking the drugs including a scale.
To which McMillin added; “There will be no running of marijuana through Spurbury on my watch. You can count on it.”
