A Chicago mother faces charges after she allegedly tried to leave her 3-year-old son at a West Side police station.

Twenty-four-year-old Tierra Aldridge reportedly told officers at the Harrison District station she didn't want the child anymore.

Police say, when they tried to explain to Aldridge that the Department of Children and Family Services could help her, she walked away.

Police arrested Aldridge outside the station. They said they found a rock-like substance on her.

Aldridge reportedly admitted selling drugs.
