A woman was arrested on drug charges after her young son told investigators how she cooked meth with materials she kept in a car trunk, police in Florida said.

Volusia County Police said that they arrested 26-year-old Briana Buchanan of Edgewater, after her 7-year-old son saw her cook and use methamphetamine.

The incident began when the boy told his uncle that his mother was cooking something really bad. On Friday, the boy took his uncle to his mother’s car and told him to look in the trunk.

Inside was drug paraphernalia, sitting right next to some toys belonging to the child. The uncle shut the trunk, went back inside the house and called police.

When police arrived, they found dozens of items inside the trunk used for cooking methamphetamine. The boy also described how his mother manufactured methamphetamine.

The child said that his mother puts the ingredients into a soda bottle and shakes it. Then she removed the bottle cap to let some air out.

Buchanan was charged with child neglect, possession of chemicals, possession of methamphetamine and manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine.

The child was handed over to the custody of his grandmother.
