Cheren was supposed to have had a hip operation this week, reports Marcus K. Garner of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, but now she’s sitting in the Fulton County Jail instead.

The arrest warrant claims that Cheren was seen Thursday evening selling more than eight ounces of marijuana, a felony. Atlanta Police narcotics officers said they learned about the alleged sale and followed an alleged customer. After finding less than an ounce of cannabis in the woman’s car, they persuaded her to rat out her dealer, the cops said.

Cheren’s home in the Buckhead neighborhood of southeast Atlanta was raided, and the cops found a “large container” filled with marijuana, plus two metal lunch boxes holding more than $130,000 in cash, police claimed. (Wonder how much it was before a bunch of it went in their pockets.)

She has a prior criminal history, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections. Back in 1991, she was arrested for drug possession in Baldwin County, DOC officials claimed.

During Cheren’s initial court appearance on Friday at the jail, a public defender told a Fulton County judge that Cheren was due to have hip surgery this week. When the judge asked her a few questions, she replied that she was nervous, reports Ryan Young at WSB TV.

Her bond has reportedly been set at $25,000, which she hasn’t been able to make.

“They won’t let her out,” said a woman stopping in front of Cheren’s home on Monday who identified herself as “a good friend.”

“She’s old and can barely move,” the woman said.
