Methamphetamine production is big business in the Czech Republic. So big that even Breaking Bad referenced the country as a haven for production of the drug.

Now, the Czech Republic boasts what local media are calling the “oldest drug dealer in the country.”

A 75-year-old woman was arrested in Příbram on counts of methamphetamine distribution. She used the Czech Post to send the drug to her clients.

The producer of the illegal drugs was the woman’s 45-year-old son, who was also arrested; police photos of their home reveal a dirty bathtub where the drug was presumably made, along with beakers and flasks. 

Ten other people were arrested in the police operation.

The woman can’t claim the title of oldest drug dealer in the world, however. 87-year-old Florida resident Ola Mae Agee was arrested for selling crack cocaine from her living room in 2010.

The UK’s Francis Cook, who operated £70,000 cannabis farm, was arrested in 2012 at the age of 83.
