(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested and charged with child trafficking related charges after trying to sell her children in order to have enough money to bail out her boyfriend from jail, according to police reports in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma mother tried to sell her two children for $4,000 to bail her boyfriend, according to police.
Misty VanHorn, 22, is accused of offering her babies, one who is 2-years-old and the other who is 10-months-old, through facebook.
The mother of the two allegedly approached a woman in Fort Smith, Arkansas, through the social networking site.
Her eldest son was listed for sale for $1,000, or the customer can have her two children for $4,000, a local newspaper reported.
The woman, concerned about the safety of the children, contacted Oklahoma Department of Human Services, who in turn notified police.
VanHorn was arrested on suspicion of child trafficking and is being held in the Sequoyah County Jail on bail of $40,000. The state has taken custody of the children.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
