This is one time when being a tattle-tell was the RIGHT thing to do!
A 27-year-old mother named Briana Buchanan was arrested in Volusia County in Edgewater, Florida, after her 7-year-old son told her unnamed landlord about "mommy's bad stuff in her car."
The unidentified man, who mentioned he is the child's uncle, had been allowing the mother and son to stay with him for about a month before one day the young boy revealed that his mother kept something in the trunk.
The young boy also apparently said:
"Mommy goes to the store and lies to the people, saying she is sick and needs medicine."
When they looked in the trunk, the uncle/landlord realized that what was in the trunk was a mobile meth lab! And he immediately called police!
Here's what he said:
"He opened up the car and he pointed to a bag and right away its everything you've seen online related to meth labs. So I pulled him away and I called 911."
The drugs were apparently right next to the young child's toys which is pretty messed up!
When the young mother was arrested this past Friday, she was charged with "child neglect with great bodily harm, possession of methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of listed chemical and possession/use of narcotic paraphernalia."
Thankfully the 7-year-old child is now staying with his grandmother which we hope will stay the case until this mother gets her act together!
Especially after the news that police found syringes filled with meth inside the mother's home.
That's just unacceptable behavior in general, but is downright audacious considering the child was so close to such harmful drugs!
