Couple arrested for attempt to sell baby

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

(WFLX) - A couple is behind bars for trying to sell their six month old baby, and the whole incident happened outside of a Wal-Mart.

Police say the couple went up to two women outside the store and asked them if they wanted to buy a baby for 25 dollars. The women say they thought it was a joke. Then, they called police when they continued to push the sale.

The couple was arrested at their home, which authorities described as a mess. They noticed that it was very filthy, in disarray, just definitely not in good living conditions. Police say the couple also appeared to be high on drugs.

The baby is now in the custody of DCF.
