A mom tried to sell her two children for $4,000 so she could pay her boyfriend’s bail, police have said.
Misty VanHorn, 22, is accused of offering up her babies — one who is 2 years old and the other just 10 months — via Facebook.
The mom of two allegedly contacted a woman in Fort Smith, Ark., through the social network site.
Her oldest child was worth $1,000, or the “customer” could have both children for $4,000, reports her as saying.
The woman, concerned about the safety of the youngsters, contacted Oklahoma Department of Human Services, who in turn notified Sallisaw Police.
VanHorn was arrested on suspicion of trafficking children and is now being held in Sequoyah County Jail on $40,000 bond. The state has taken custody of the children.
