Woman Attempts To Sell Her Child For $500 At Taco Bell

It’s low-down and despicable enough to try to sell your child, but one woman has taken baby-selling to a new low, after she allegedly tried to unload her newborn for a paltry $500 at a Taco Bell. Of all places!

The Vancouver, Wash. woman is accused of offering her 3-day old son at a Taco Bell in southwest Washington, reports The Seattle-Times. She has been arrested on previously existing warrants.

Officers responded to a 911 call last week, where the caller said a woman had approached her with the baby at the Taco Bell and offered to sell him for $500. She was turned down, of course.

Deputies located the woman at a motel with the apparently healthy baby, and called Child Protective Services. The woman has denied trying to sell her baby.
