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.

    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.

    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%
    “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

    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.

    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…….

    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.
