A 76-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly selling crack cocaine by putting the drugs in her purse and lowering them by rope from her second-floor window.

The woman was arrested last week on charges of possession and sale of a controlled substance, and was freed on $10,000 bail.

The suspect, who has no record of previous arrests in Jacksonville, is accused of selling $20 worth of crack in a police sting.

Police said they found a gun and ammunition in Minnie Perlotte Collins' house, as well as a purse attached to a rope next to her bed.
