(Scroll down for video) Police were looking for a teenager who allegedly raped a young girl.
However, officers had a hard time finding the suspect, 19-year-old Elijah Jordan Jackson, because he was no longer in Colorado.
Authorities called the teen’s mother and told her of the accusations against her son.
The mother decided to hand over her son to police. She drove to Wyoming, to pick up her son, who is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in Fort Collins.
She brought back her son to Colorado, and then took him directly to the police station, where he was arrested.
Authorities said that the woman saved them a lot of money as they would have had to go through the Wyoming court system to get an extradition order to bring back Jackson.
Jackson denied the allegations made against him.
