A 10-year-old boy from Pennsylvania discovered something so horrible in his parents’ bedroom that it landed them in jail.
According to the York Daily Record, the child was upset with his parents for leaving him alone in their house. The parents, 27-year-old Lakin Michelle Stoppard and 26-year-old Anthony Edward Young II, often left their young some home alone to fend for himself.
But the child kept a dark secret. His parents were using drugs constantly, and the child often begged his father to stop, but the mother defended the drug use.
One day, while his parents were away, the child carried out a secret plan. He entered his parents’ bedroom, saw their drug stash and called the police on his parents.
When the police arrived, they found eight syringes, a glass crack pipe, four packets of heroin, and several other drug-related items.
Police called the parents and asked them to come home, and when they refused, police sent out a search party to find them. When they finally caught the couple, police saw they had been doing drugs recently.
The parents are now being punished by the law. Not only have they been charged with multiple offense, but their child was taken away from them and is in the custody of youth services.
Although the boy lost his family and potentially his only chance at a real relationship with his parents, he was still brave enough to do the right thing for a better life, for both him and his parents.
