The ‘Narco Grandparents,’ a group of retired drug lords in Colombia, have been successfully dismantled.
Strangers may have thought the elderly druglords were harmless old biddies, but they were actually huge criminals dealing in narcotics.
When an undercover agent secretly recorded him selling marijuana and a drug known as Basuko, the organized crime gang was reportedly rumbled.
One of the gang bosses was identified as “Chuki,” a man who delivered cocaine doses door to door and was the brains behind the group’s ability to elude authorities.
According to Borderland Beat, the 77-year-old gang boss enlisted the help of three other people and assigned them specific areas to sell drugs.
The Narco Grandparents were apprehended while smuggling cocaine.
