(Scroll down for video) Police officers were shocked when a young boy pulled out a loaded gun from his toy box, according to police in Florida.

Boynton Beach police said that they have arrested 34-year-old Rosalyn Faniel, after being accused of keeping a loaded gun within reach of her 3-year-old son.

Faniel has been charged with one count of child neglect. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, and her bail has been set at $3,500.

According to the criminal complaint, a neighbor called police to report that a man was selling drugs all night, and numerous drug addicts were going in and out of Faniel’s apartment.

Police officers who arrived at the scene, began questioning Faniel about the drug sales. She denied the allegations.

At some point, Faniel’s 3-year-old son dragged a toy box and pulled out a loaded gun in front of the police officers. One of the officers quickly grabbed the gun.

Police then looked around the house, and found a scale and six small plastic bags containing Oxycodone on top of a refrigerator.

Faniel said that she did not know how the gun and the drugs ended up in her apartment.
