OAKLAND PARK, Fla., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Police allege a 62-year-old grandmother in Florida was found with cocaine in her bra during a recent raid of a suspected crack house.

Broward Sheriff's Office spokesman Mike Jachles said grandmother Henrietta Daise was arrested Friday after she was found inside the alleged crack house in Oakland Park, Fla. She was charged with dealing drugs along with three of her adult grandchildren, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Sunday.

The police spokesman said Daise denied the allegations against her following the raid in the city's Harlem McBride neighborhood.

The charges against Daise, her grandchildren and four other suspects range from probation violation to drug dealing as 20 crack rocks and various other narcotics were allegedly found on the premises.

Oakland Park Police Chief John Bukata told the newspaper the raid was part of a local police effort to stop drug dealers.

"We will eliminate the drug dealing on the streets and in the homes one dealer at a time," the police chief said.
