The Candy Lady selling drugs out of her kitchen window

On November 16, 2011 Mobile County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant to a residence on Faure Drive.  MCSO received several anonymous tips about LUCILLE DENEE BROWN, also known as “The Candy Lady”, selling drugs out of her home.

 

When MCSO deputies arrived to serve the search warrant, BROWN was in the bathroom trying to flush the drugs down the toilet.  Deputies found marijuana, pills, guns and bullets inside BROWN’S home.

 

A few days prior to her arrest, undercover narcotic deputies purchased marijuana from BROWN out of her kitchen window where anonymous tips stated she had been selling them.   A sign posted beside the window listed various food items for sale.

 

BROWN is charged with possession of controlled substance and possession of marijuana 2nd.
