11-year-old Lawrence boy finds drugs, calls police on father

11-year-old Lawrence boy finds drugs, calls police on father

Officers in MA are calling an 11-year-old boy courageous after he found illegal drugs in his dad's suitcase and called 911.

When investigators arrived, they identified the substance as heroin mixed with Fentanyl, a potent and highly addictive opiate. The boy told police he had also seen his father conducting a drug deal earlier.

The boy's father, Yamil Mercado, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning on the charges of trafficking heroin over 200 grams and reckless endangerment of a child in Lawrence District Court.

"I commend this young man for being courageous enough to come forward and report that these unsafe substances were in his home", Fitzpatrick said. The estimated street value is about $8,500. "It is frightening to consider that the drugs the boy found are strong enough to cause serious harm to full grown adults, merely by being in their presence, and to consider what could have happened had he not immediately called for help from law enforcement".

As for the conversation with the Russians about Comey, Spicer essentially put the onus on the ex-FBI director. At the time , the White House distributed the memo written by Rosenstein, which was dated May 9.

"I haven't heard of many drug kingpins who get evicted from their apartment", Kelley said, adding, "he's likely the fall guy here". They won't be releasing the man's name or his photo at this time, they told Boston 25 News.

The boy is now in the care of family members.

Andrea Grossman, a DCF spokeswoman, declined to say whether the department has a history with the family, citing state and federal legal restrictions.
