In today's #BLANKSTARENEWS a mother who lives in a condo complex is facing charges after police say she tied her son to a bush.

Authorities say the 22-year-old woman, identified as Mery Isabel Quinde-Castro, babysits for someone else in the Blueberry Hill complex and that her 4-year-old son finished up preschool on Monday.

“The child could have been taken, injured,” said Chief Modica. “Definitely not great parenting there.” He said the boy had been alone, tieed up, for about a half hour.

The boy was not hurt, but an ambulance was called the scene as a precaution.
