An 11 year old boy is being called courageous for turning in his own father.
The child called the cops after he found a stash of drugs in his father’s suitcase.
The incident occurred in Lawrence, MA this week when police got a 911 call from a boy who told them ‘I think my dad sells drugs’, reported Fox 13.
The boy said he was in his dad’s room with his 13-year-old cousin when they found the stash and knew exactly what it was before he called the cops. It turned out to be about $10,000 worth of narcotics.
“He found what he believed to be drugs in his father’s belongings,” Lawrence Chief James Fitzpatrick said. “It was a large amount of narcotics that we believe to be a heroin/fentanyl mix [weighing} about 200 grams”
“I commend this young man for being brave enough to come forward and report that these dangerous substances were in his home,” Fitzpatrick said.
The father, 40-year old Yamil Mercado, was charged with child endangerment and drug trafficking.
The child is now with his grandmother according to Crime Watch.
