71-year-old grandmother charged for selling painkillers
TRENTON — A 71-year-old grandmother was allegedly offering much more than sweet treats to visitors of her Chestnut Avenue home.
Police allege Eudean McMillan, 71, was dealing prescription painkillers — and she was well-armed. She was arrested around noon Thursday by officers from the Trenton Police Department's Violent Crimes/Warrant Unit during a raid that followed a year-long investigation, Trenton Police Lieutenant Steven Varn said.
Police found $3,200 and 165 pills in McMillan's home as well as a shotgun and handgun, Varn said.
Police also charged Kenneth Odom, 58 of Trenton, after he was seen buying narcotics from McMillan, Van said.
Odom had 250 pulls in his position, including Endocet and Oxycodone, which are strong opioid painkillers, and Suboxone, which is used to treat opioid addiction, police said.
Odom was charged with several drug possession and distribution violations.
McMillan was charged with drug possession, drug distribution and firearms violations. She was released on $20,000 bail Thursday night, according to a NJ Advance Media report. Odom is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
