The Salem Oregon edition of craigslist apparently listed a baby for sale for meth by a couple desperate to get high. Police were alerted and the post was deleted by craigslist yesterday.
The post reportedly said:
“The baby’s mother isn’t coming back” and “We are out of tweak and we will sell this baby for a $1,000.”
This afternoon 33 year old Patrick Lee Ryan was arrested and is being charged with buying or selling a child, disorderly conduct in the first degree and computer crime in connection with the crime. It’s reported to have been a very lame hoax and an attempt to draw police attention to the couple named in the posting. The man responsible for posting doesn’t have any children (Thank God). His bail is set at $35,000.
