A desperate Washington state mom tried to sell her newborn baby to a customer at a roadside Taco Bell, authorities said.
Heidi Lynn Knowles, 36, appeared before a judge Monday to face charges she tried to peddle her 3-day-old boy to a woman who was eating at the fast food joint in Vancouver, Wash., last Thursday.
Cops said Knowles asked for bids between $500 and $5,000, KOIN television reported.
She was arrested at a nearby motel after the woman she approached called 911.
