WPD: Mom had 15-year-old son sell heroin

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police say they've made another heroin bust, this time arresting a woman they say had her teenaged son sell the drug.

Officers executed a search warrant at 308 North 5th Ave. Tuesday. They arrested Anglena Aqunette Boynton, 36, who lives at the home, after they say they found 31 bags of heroin.

Boynton faces several drug charges, including promoting drug sales by a minor. Police say that charge stems from Boynton allegedly using her 15-year-old son to make some of the heroin sales police were investigating.

Boynton is in jail under $100,000 bond.

I know of this lady through

I know of this lady through a heroin addicted friend who I have tried to help. She is finally OFF the streets. I read all the comments and it is sad but most are accurate. She does receive government assistance to the max. Hopefully she will be taken off public services. She is a piece of work, fat lazy and feels entitled. She knows no life without the system.

Immediate Action

Social Services -- do not allow the boy to be released to his parents. Some form of foster home has got to be better. If there are any other children in the household -- get them out of the house.

Is she receiving any form of entitlements? Cut them off.

Is she in public housing or getting a section 8 voucher? Cut it off.

WTF is wrong with these ppl.

WTF is wrong with these ppl. Try using Prayer because at the end of the day while GOD is watching over her & her child. He is also watching the poor judgement of everyone commenting on this post. Nothing may not happen today but remember your day will come and please don't ask WHY ME GOD, because this is your proof for JUDGEMENT day. God bless you all and believe you me it could have happen to anyone.......

And sometimes

God may need a helping hand. He helps those who help themselves.

Clearly a parent who woruld steer her child into a life of drug selling should have her child, and any other children, removed from her custody while she deals with her need for improved parenting skills.

If God is watching the poor judgement of those posting, you must be at the head of the line for some one on one with him. Clearly, you need it.

Hiding behind God just doesn't cut it anymore.

God is watching the poor judgment of this mother and son and their criminal activity not the people who say it's wrong.

This couldn't happen to anyone. It only happens to people who're criminals. The rest of us aren't acting like this.

Interesting that you're going to tell the rest of us about God and praying yet you use the acronym "WTF". Did you think the "F" stood for frankincense? I think not.

You're just another ghetto phony hiding behind some God stuff to try and justify all of the criminal activity in your community. I guess that's a lot easier than actually trying to fix things.

Don't do the crime and there's nothing to talk about.

She is just teaching the kid

She is just teaching the kid the ropes. You know, capitalism, free market, obamanomics. He has to learn a profession that has no REPORTED income to interfere with the benefits, the dole, the draw. With a regular job you end up with W2's, 10-99's and all that IRS stuff that messes up the deal. As an amateur pharmaceutical entrepreneur you don't have all this to worry about. But then, there's the cops....................................

Goolsby's law is very timely

This case just proves how important Senator Thom Goolsby's legislation prohibiting welfare for drug dealers and users is. Of course, the Democrats opposed Goolsby's bill. Taxpayers are fed-up subsidizing these deadbeat criminals.

Guestjohn

In states that have started testing some welfare recipients the results completely refute the notion that welfare queens are using drugs.
In Florida less than 3%
http://tbo.com/ap/politics/welfare-drug-testing-yields--positive-results...
"Net savings to the state -- $3,400 to $8,200 annually on one month's worth of rejected applicants. Over 12 months, the money saved on all rejected applicants would add up to $40,800-$98,400 for the cash assistance program that state analysts have predicted will cost $178 million this fiscal year."
Hmmm....saving $98 GRAND is far less than $178M

In Mich less than 4%
Current testing in NC (yes they already do some testing) shows less than 2%
The costs of the tests almost outweighed the savings in those states.
The unfortunate thing is that as a result of the great crash more "law abiding" citizens are using welfare as a means to get by.
The majority are not drug addicts by any stretch of the imagination.
And BTW Goolsby did not sponsor the bill either (SB 594).
But that's OK don't let facts get in the way of your posting

There's a lot of competition

There's a lot of competition for parent of the week. The luckiest one is the mom in Brunswick County.

Passing The Torch

Is this a 3rd generation Welfare Queen Criminal, passing the torch to her delinquent son ? Sooner or later, this balloons gotta pop.

WPD:Mom had 15-year-old son sell heroin

Doya'll know this to be actual facts or what the newspaper and television is making up? As humans if you mind your own business maybe one day this might not occur in your household. Never pass judgement on the next cause it could happen to you........

If the state would have done

If the state would have done its job during at least one of her many previous convictions, then maybe she wouldn't have been in a position to drag her child into criminal behavior. Or did the NC Department of Corrections make that up?

What this woman has done could not happen to me. I don't deal drugs and I would never even think of dragging my children into criminal behavior like this so-called mother did.

Right. Just like Trayvon

Right. Just like Trayvon Martin, she was a perfect saint. It was all a setup, she and her son were profiled. Maybe we can have a rally at the 1898 Memorial, for them. Maybe we can get the Honorable Daawud El-Amin to lead it. Hopefully they'll have more then the few dozen they had last time.

Mind our own business?

Maybe if the people in your community TOOK CARE OF YOUR BUSINESS this wouldn't be happening. Won't happen though because you think crime's OK but talking about it isn't. Stop enabling criminals and there won't be anything to talk about.

Wow, talk about "bass ackwards"!

Seriously?

The newspaper and television just made this up? And no, I won't just mind my business! Your drug dealing friends are ruining this town! Could it happen to me? Not a chance because, guess what?.. Wait for it... I DON'T SELL DRUGS!!

Do us all a favor and look up the word "enabler" in the dictionary.

Mother Of the year.

Guess she will get the mother of the year award. Nice going her bond needs to be changed to no bond that way she never get out we dont need people and mothers like her out on the streets corupting kids and her son need to get time too age dont matter. he know better than that.

the WPD must have been

the WPD must have been racially profiling the poor lady, oh no...get ready for Mr. Sharpleton to pay a visit

Really???

Really...Racial profiling? What does that have to do with anything? Wrong is wrong no matter what color one may be. By the way who is Mr. Sharpleton??? Were you referring to Mr. Al Sharpton? LOL!

My gawd

Between this heifer and the Dad and son tag team, is this take your kid to work week? You wonder why the youth of today are SO screwed up ??

Look At Her

Another dreg of society born and bred in the projects supported all her life by Democrats with their policies of providing unfettered support for just being a minority. I would wager she is a HS dropout, on welfare, fat and as unproductive as you can get. She lives in the midst of the black community and these people who rave about crime should be in contact with her.

There are people who want to

There are people who want to reclassify an adult, from over 16, to over 18. To "give these poor children a better chance". That's why the drug dealers, and gangsters, are using 14, and 15 year olds, left and right. When these 15 year olds are arrested, and immediately released to their parents, their parents couldn't care less. Most of their parents are like this woman.

By raising the age, it will just mean many more thousands of 16 and 17 year olds, slinging drugs, and assaulting people, with total immunity.

Finally, someone who gets

Finally, someone who gets it. Also, the fines in Juvy court are limited to $500. There is a NC case of a juvy who burned a neighbor's $200,000 house to the ground and never spent a night in custody and was fined $500, payable by the parent, end of case. They know the system. That's why so many 16 and 17 year olds lie to the police and say they are 15, they know nothing can happen to them if they are 15. This mother most likely knew jr would be sent home if he was busted, but she got more than she bargained for.

There HAS to be a way to blame this on Zimmerman

Gotta be Zimmermans fault.

Zimmerman?

It's George W's fault. It has to be. Everything is!

Five years later....

Why

Why would this have anything to do with Zimmerman?

Well, well, well another

Well, well, well another piece of trash makes the news. This is pitiful excuse for a mom!

other

Its funny I don't see you commenting on the other great parent's that were arrested with there children.Oh yeah wway was slow posted them.
