BRIDGEPORT - Police say a Bridgeport woman allegedly kidnapped a 3-year-old boy while she was high on drugs Wednesday night.

Police say the mother of the child left the boy in the care of a babysitter who invited Gandy over. They say Gandy and the baby sitter began getting high on marijuana and PCP. Gandy then allegedly left the apartment with the child.

Officials say Gandy and the child turned up at Bridgeport Hospital around 12 a.m. They say she was disoriented, but the child was unharmed.

A judge set Gandy's bond at $25,000.
