Chief: Boy called police to say father had drugs in luggage

A MA has turned himself in after his 11-year-old son found drugs in his luggage Wednesday and called police.

Police said they also found a scale and additional sandwich bags inside the luggage.

The boy had also called the Department of Children and Families about a year ago to report his father for dealing drugs, according to the Boston Globe. The Department of Children and Families is investigating.

She also refused to confirm whether the boy had reached out to the agency previous year, though she noted that DCF "carefully considers all information" from both adults and children when assessing a child's safety.

"He's courageous and insightful enough to know that this is a risky drug". He plead not guilty and is being held without bail.

"It is frightening to consider that the drugs the boy found are strong enough to cause serious harm to full grown adults, merely by being in their presence, and to consider what could have happened had he not immediately called for help from law enforcement", Lawrence Police Chief James Fitzpatrick told WBTS.

Mercado's lawyer, Brendan Kelley, said his client was recently evicted and is likely taking the fall for somebody. Officers searched the man's luggage and found the drugs packed in multiple plastic bags, as well as several other empty bags, authorities said.

In 2013, Mercado was charged with possession and intent to distribute a class A substance, which police believed to be heroin, as well as driving with a suspended license.

Mercado, pictured, was arraigned Friday in Lawrence District Court and plead not guilty to charges of drug trafficking and child endangerment.
