Wash. 'boy for sale' Craigslist ad investigated
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Spokane County sheriff's deputies are investigating the listing of a 4-year-old boy for sale on Craigslist.

KREM reports search warrants indicate the Spokane boy was offered for sale for $5,000. The listing said he's "a great kid, but I can no longer afford to take care of him."

The listing was taken down last month. Detectives have subpoenaed Craigslist and two Internet providers to track down the person who posted the ad.
