A mother and aunt face serious charges this morning after Danville Police say a toddler ingested drugs.

The 18-month old's mother told police the child was stumbling and acting strangely. After running tests at the hospital, the boy tested positive for cocaine.

When police went to search the boy's home on Chestnut street, his aunt refused to let them inside the home.

His mother, 20-year old Ashley Carrier, and his aunt, 24-year old Jessica Coffman, were both charged with first degree assault and wanton endangerment.

The toddler is now at Kentucky Children's Hospital.
