FLORIDA – A seven-year-old boy in Florida says his mom was cooking and using methamphetamine, so he turned her in.

The boy and his 26-year-old mother were living in Edgewater with her boyfriend’s brother, Peter.

He says the boy he thinks of as his nephew told him for days that his mom was cooking “something bad.”

Peter says it took days before the boy worked up the courage to show him what it was.

“…and her sonm who’s seven, just told me she keeps bad stuff in her car, and he opened up the trunk and she has a meth lab in her trunk.”

Peter took the boy inside and they called police.

Police arrested Briana Buchanan on drug and child neglect charges.
