fox5sandiego – Fed up and armed with a gun, a grandmother is trying to take back her neighborhood from the drug dealers she says ripped it apart.
Jonnie McIntosh gave WXIN her message for any criminals at work near her Haughville, Indiana block: “It is loaded. Get your drugs and get out of my neighborhood.”
McIntosh said two of those suspected drug dealers threatened to shoot her and her 70-year-old husband over a drug deal on Tuesday.
“He pulled his gun out and when I saw the gun come out that is when I grabbed my gun,” McIntosh said.
The no-nonsense granny said she grabbed her loaded Glock when the suspects demanded $20.00 for her grandson’s Spice debt.
“If you are stupid enough to sell it to these kids, you get what you deserve,” McIntosh said.
McIntosh told WXIN that her grandson just overdosed on Spice two weeks ago.
“I do not see what they get out of it,” she said. “Who wants to sit there passed out and do not have a clue what is going on around them.”
McIntosh is trying to help him get clean, but said Spice dealers are on every street near her house on N. Berwick.
Spice has been an ongoing issue for police in Indianapolis. Just this month, emergency crews recorded runs to nearly a dozen drug overdoses within a mile of McIntosh’s home.
“Back in my day, it was marijuana and Boones Farm wine. That is all my parents had to worry about. This stuff has bug spray in it and all kinds of chemicals. Whatever they decide to spray on it. Any way that they can get high,” McIntosh said.
Just last year, McIntosh’s pregnant granddaughter, 18-year-old Brittany McNew, was murdered near Haughville.
“She died over a drug deal because a guy decided to rob another guy for heroin and Spice,” said McIntosh.
This grandma is not ready to lose another loved one to the drug trade and said she will do whatever it takes to stop the dealers.
“Get off your lazy rump and get a job. Quit pushing drugs on these kids,” McIntosh said.

During an exclusive interview with TIME, the mother of notorious drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman shared what she thinks of her son.
Guzman, 61, is in New York City’s highest-security prison after escaping from Mexican prisons twice, once in 2001 and again in 2015. He is accused of trafficking drugs worth $14 billion into the United States. His is one of the biggest narcotics cases in U.S. criminal history.
During the interview, Guzman’s mother, Consuelo Loera, 88, spoke about his childhood growing up in a mud-made shack in Mexico’s Sierra Madre mountains.
“They were difficult times. We longed for something better,” Loera told TIME.
TIME reports Guzmán helped bring food to the table by hauling sacks of oranges around the hills to sell to peasant farmers for a few pesos.
“He always fought for a better life,” Loera told TIME, “even as a small boy.”
TIME reports Guzman’s mother no longer lives in a muddy shack, but instead in a sprawling brick compound with guards outside on quad bikes brandishing Kalashnikov assault rifles.
“I just talked to him by telephone,” Loera told TIME. “He is putting on a brave face. He has always been someone who acts as if everything is fine.”
IN THE FAMILY: No one parties like the son of ‘El Chapo’
Dozens of other Mexican drug lords who have been extradited to the U.S. in recent years have pleaded guilty – usually, as part of deals. Guzmán however has declared himself innocent. Due to his plea, a trial is scheduled for September in a federal court in Brooklyn. Until then, he remains in the New York City prison.
