A Dallas mother is suspected of trying to sell her newborn in a classified ad, NBCdfw.com reported.
A would-be-buyer of the baby got cold feet and contacted Dallas police about the classified ad selling a 4-month-old baby boy for $4,000.
Managers at the Shadow Ridge apartments went into the mother's apartment Friday afternoon to try and collect back rent. Police said the managers found the baby alone in his crib with no one else in the apartment.
The mother was arrested on a charge of child abandonment when she returned home. An empty car seat was in the backseat of her Honda.
Her name was not released as of late Friday night.
