A mom in Ohio turned in her son because it was the right thing to do.

A video of armed robbery shows a man pointing a gun at a store employee.

The man was able to escape with some money and the employee's cell phone.

The video was broadcasted on a local news station and came to the attention of the man's mother.

She began looking for her son and found him hiding in her garage. That is when she called 911.

Temple Washington says that it was hard to turn in her son, but it was the right thing to do.

She also said that her son has been battling a drug addiction for years and she takes some comfort in him being behind bars now because she knows where he is.
