Police: Grandma, 63, made up robbery story (Image 1)

A financially-strapped grandmother was arrested last week in Clarksville after she told police she was robbed by a man officers later learned she sold prescription painkillers to.
 
According to police, 63-year-old Bessie Bryant was short on cash so she asked a family member to find someone she could sell the drug Loritab to.

A buyer was located and a purchase price of $400 was agreed on for 90 Loritab pills.

The buyer, however, was $100 short when he arrived at Bryant's Oakdale Drive home.

At first, police said Bryant agreed to take a handgun from the buyer as collateral until he could return with the other $100.

A few minutes later, when she changed her mind in fear the gun might be stolen, the man left the $300, took the pills and the gun and fled the home.

After the man left, Bryant concocted the robbery story and called police.

Bryant was charged with filing a false report and booked into the Montgomery County jail on a $2,500 bond.
