Adorable 99yo woman gets arrested to tick it off her bucket list

A 99-year-old woman has become quite possibly the most adorable “criminal” ever.

The woman, named Annie, was “arrested” by police in the Netherlands last week after her Auntie organised for the bizarre wish to be ticked off her bucket list.

Officers from the town of Nijmegan-Zuid wrote on Facebook that Annie had always wanted to “experience a police cell from within” and so they “granted her wish”.


“It was a day to remember!” police wrote alongside happy snaps of the beaming elderly woman sitting in a police cell while handcuffed.

The post, which was posted to Facebook last week, has already received more than 5000 likes and hundreds of comments.

“This police dept is awesome. She couldn’t look happier! This post made my night!” one person wrote.

“This post made me and my partner laugh so much well done Annie! Seriously a big shout out to the amazing police force over there that is one happy young lady you made of Annie” commented another.
