VINITA - A Craig County drug task force serving a search warrant late Monday seized about $277,000 in cash from the home of a 73-year-old woman, Craig County Sheriff Jimmie Sooter said.

Darlene Mayes was booked into the county jail about 11:45 p.m. on complaints that included possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and maintaining a dwelling where drugs are.

“She didn’t say much,” Sooter said of Mayes, a retired Department of Human Services worker. “She said the money was hers, that it was for retirement. Of course, once we got into it, it was pretty obvious it wasn’t hers.”
