A girl managed to run a large drug business out of her bedroom, according to police in Massachusetts.

Neighbors said that their sleep was being disturbed every night as customers walked up the stairs to the teen’s bedroom, which was on the third floor of the multi-family home in Haverhill.

Customers came up to the teen’s bedroom window at all hours of the night. They knocked on the window and exchanged drugs for cash.

One neighbor said that the girl’s mother was repeatedly informed about the illegal drug operation, but she did not stop her daughter.

Police were alerted and searched the home.

Police said that they found marijuana, cocaine, fentanyl, two unlicensed guns, ammunition, and $1,069 in cash.

Police arrested the 15-year-old girl along with her mother. The teenager was not named due to her age, but her mother was identified as 37-year-old Heather Vittorioso.

The mother faces charges including reckless endangerment to a child.
