Personally I would stay as far away from him as possible otherwise his trouble might very well get you in trouble just by being around him and his illegal activities, if this isn't possible I'd turn him in quietly in case he is dangerous.

I would call the cops.
Coming from someone who knows this all too well. Your brother is not going to get better as long as your mother is enabling him and bailing him out of trouble. He needs to know what consequences are for his actions If that means sitting in jail, so be it.. He also has to want to get better for himself, not forced into it.
