Esmeralda Garza, 29, from Corpus Christ, Texas, was arrested on Friday for allegedly selling her son and for attempting to sell her two daughters. Police raided Garza's home after a drug warrant was issued on her, and that is when they discovered the alleged selling of her children.
According to the police, Garza sold her 7-year-old son, who was in the apartment with her, and was in the process of selling her two young daughters – aged 2 and 3. The children's maternal grandmother and uncle expressed their shock of what allegedly happened when stating they were under the impression he was safe in his mother's home.
Garza has been charged with a third degree felony charge of sale or purchase of a child and is currently being held on a bond of $100,000 at the Nueces County Jail pending investigation.
