Dallas, Texas (The Weekly Vice) - Brittany Hill, a 26-year-old Texas woman was jailed after she allegedly tried to sell her 4-month-old son using a classified ad.
According to police, a woman contacted Dallas police after she drove from out of state to purchase the child, but got cold feet and called detectives instead.
Investigators say the would-be purchaser, who has not been identified, drove to Dallas after Hill posted a classified ad offering to sell the child for $4,000.
As police were launching an investigation, managers at Hill's apartment complex entered her apartment to collect rent and found the child alone in a crib. Hill was taken into custody when she returned to the apartment several hours later.
Hill was booked into the Dallas County Jail and charged with child abandonment with intent to return.
The child was placed into the custody of child services.
