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 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.

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.

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………………………………

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.

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