Oklahoma (The Gaslamp Post) – A woman was arrested and her children taken into custody after police say she attempted to sell them in order to get bail money for her boyfriend. Police say that 22-year-old Misty Nicole Vanhorn had tried to sell them to an Arkansas woman whom she had contacted on Facebook.
According to KFOR-TV, Vanhorn had advertised her 10-month-old and 2-year-old children for $1000 each, or both for $4000. She had reportedly sent a message to her perspective buyer saying, “Just come to Sallisaw, it’s only 30 minutes away and I’ll give you all of her stuff and let y’all have her forever for $1,000.”
Apparently Vanhorn wasn’t aware that gypsies are known to pay top dollar for children.
A relative of Vanhorn reportedly contacted Oklahoma State Department of Human Services and reported her to authorities. She is in custody and is charged with human trafficking.
