Nine people, including a 73-year-old grandmother, her two daughters and granddaughter, were arrested in a drug roundup last week.

The Levy County Sheriff's Office Drug Task force charged the nine with 21 felonies and four misdemeanors, while also conducting one warrant arrest. The drug buys occurred at 242 Pine St. and also within 100 feet from the Bronson Post Office property, according to a Sheriff's Office press release.

A warrant was executed at Ethel Greenlee Brinson's residence at 242 Pine Street, the third time that has occurred.

Brinson was warned on a previous occasion that if drug activity were found again she would be charged with maintaining a drug dwelling, according to the Sheriff's Office. During the six-month investigation Ms. Brinson was recorded on video when undercover buys were done inside her residence.

At the time of her arrest drug agents seized .27 grams of crack cocaine and assorted drug paraphernalia.

Drug Task Force agents arrested Brinson's two daughters Margaret Brown and Donna Kay Neal.
