The “Drogen-Oma” was sentenced to five years after she admitted selling eight bags of 50 grammes of heroin.

Berlin – An 81-year-old German woman dubbed the "Drogen-Oma" (Drug Granny) in the local underground scene was jailed for five years on Tuesday after admitting dealing heroin.

Christa Koehler, who is confined to a wheelchair and who will reportedly serve out her sentence in the hospital wing of a jail because of heart problems, admitted selling eight bags of around 50 grammes each.

She began dealing in the Nuremberg area of southern Germany after her son was arrested and caught by police with heroin and EUR 16,400 in cash.
