MOBILE, Ala. – A 63-year-old Prichard woman charged with trafficking cocaine appeared in court Wednesday for a bond hearing.
Jacqueline Kendrick was assigned a court appointed lawyer. Her bond was set at $12,500 for the trafficking charge, and $2,500 for possession of marijuana. She had not posted bond Wednesday afternoon and remained in Metro Jail.
Kendrick was arrested Monday. Her son Carlton Kendrick and Eddie Winters were arrested on January 21st when police raided Kendrick’s home on Neely Avenue. They confiscated thousands of dollars in drugs, and a large sum of cash.
Ms. Kendrick was not taken into custody at that time, because she has emphysema, and police believed she was too sick to be arrested.
However, Prichard Police Chief Jerry Speziale told FOX10 News police found an hidden shaft behind the wall in the home that went from her bedroom down through the house.
Kendrick will be back in court on February 5th for her preliminary hearing.
