    Arrested: Misty VanHorn is accused of child trafficking
    A young mum has been arrested of suspicion of child trafficking after allegedly trying to sell her kids for $5,000 on Facebook.
    Misty VanHorn, 22, allegedly contacted a potential buyer via the social networking site, asking for $1,000 for her 10-month-old and $4,000 for her two-year-old.

    Police say the mum-of-two, from Sallisaw, Oklahoma, wanted the cash to pay bail for her boyfriend who was in jail.
    She allegedly told the buyer on Facebook: “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.”

    Caught: The Facebook buyer alerted police
    The unidentified female buyer, in Fort Smith, in neighbouring Arkansas, contacted the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, who alerted Sallisaw Police.
    VanHorn was arrested on suspicion of trafficking children and is currently being held in Sequoyah County Jail, with her bail set at $40,000.
    Her two children were placed into the care of the DHS, police said.
    Neighbours told reporters that VanHorn had been trying to raise $1,000 to bail her boyfriend out of prison.
    Local resident Tony Mosby said: “She was going door to door, here to all the way across town asking everybody for money to get him out.”
    It is not known what offence he was being held on.

    Are they sure she wasn't just joking? Surely you wouldn't be that stupid.

    Well who can blame her? You can make more babies, but she can never get that boyfriend again!

    OMG. I hope she never gets to be in the same room with children again. Dumb to the core.

    Fucking stupid bitch. How these children survived long enough to even sell is beyond me. If you can't manage your children, ffs call social services. there are people who can help.

    Her features are sliding off her face. Maybe she should have asked for more money so she could fix that, too.

    I'm sure she's not codependent or anything.

    I want to know how she worked the pricing out in her head. Why is the one kid worth $4000 and the younger one only $1000? Is it just that she didn't know how to divide $5000 by 2?
