An ironically named mother in North Carolina had her own teenage son arrested after he allegedly took her Pop-Tarts without permission.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers were called to the home of Latasha Renee Love earlier this week after the 37-year-old reported her $5 box of Pop-Tarts stolen.
When the cops arrived, Love "fingered her own son, who is a juvenile, as the culprit," according to a local NBC affiliate.
Though The Smoking Gun, which obtained the official police report, says the mother was attempting to teach the boy "some kind of lesson," a neighbor told WCNC he knew the kid, and he "is real respectful."
The unnamed kid's misdemeanor larceny case will be brought before a juvenile court judge at a date to be determined.
An attempt by the TV station to obtain a comment from the mother was met with obscenities.
