Allegedly for sale: Kenia Quiala Bosque's 8-month-old boy. $7,000 or best offer.

On Saturday night, someone phoned up the Monroe County Sheriff's Office to tell them Bosque, 30, was about to meet a man in Miami to sell her kid to him.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, they sent over an undercover agent to purchase the kid, but Bosque didn't show.

Still, the sheriff's office and the FDLE went over to Bosque's place in Opa-locka and "had enough evidence to make an arrest," according to the FDLE.

Bosque was booked into the Miami-Dade Women's Detention Center, where she faces an adoption violation charge.

She's being held on $5,000 bond.

The FDLE says the kid who was allegedly for sale and her other kids are now in the custody of Bosque's relatives.

Bosque's last arrest was about a year ago, when she was caught along with two others allegedly stealing copper wire in the Keys.
