|FOR SALE IN JAIL|
Kenia Quiala Bosque arranged a meeting to hand over the newborn, unaware that the prospective buyer was an undercover cop.
Officers had been tipped about her intentions and launched a sting to catch out the dastardly parent.
But although she set a fee and arranged a meeting with the supposed buyer, she failed to show up to the meeting near her Miami, FL home.
Still, investigators said they had enough evidence to arrest her on baby selling charges.
The situation was "a sign of the times," Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle told NBC Miami when asked why the mother may have wanted to sell her child.
When she failed to show up Monroe County Sheriff's Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement went to her home as they feared for the baby’s safety.
Sheriff Bob Peryam said: "We are just so glad we were able to obtain this information in time to intervene before anything could happen to endanger this child."
She has been charged with adoption violation and is being held in Miami-Dade jail on a $5,000 bond.
