SALISAW, Okla. (KTHV) -- An Oklahoma mother tried to sell her children to an Arkansas woman.

According to KFSM, Salisaw Police said Misty Vanhorn wanted money to bail her boyfriend out of jail, and after unsuccessfully going door-to-door to raise the money, she turned to Facebook and tried to sell her children.

Investigators said Vanhorn tried to sell one of her kids to a woman in Fort Smith; at first, she asked for $1,000 for her 2-year-old, but then offered both children for $4,000.

Both children have since been taken into state custody, and Vanhorn has been arrested.
