NEWPORT NEWS - A Newport News woman with baby passed out in an apartment building's common area and she's now facing drug and child neglect charges, police say.

Police found 18-year-old Tierra Moore in the 800 block of Renee Court on Monday. They say she seemed disoriented and couldn't answer basic questions, like where she lived, when she woke up.

A three-month-old child was with her, but police say Moore didn't have any diapers or formula for the baby.

Moore told police she believed someone may have put something in her drink. She claimed she had been picked up by someone she knows through a relative and then went somewhere in Hampton but remembered nothing beyond that.

Moore is facing charges of felony child neglect, possession of marijuana and underage possession of alcohol.

Child Protective Services took custody of the baby girl.
