CUMMING, Ga. (AP) — Police say a Georgia woman has been arrested for placing an online ad telling mothers they could drop off unwanted babies at her home because she wanted one for her teenage daughter.

Forsyth County sheriff’s Deputy Epifanio Rodriguez said in a statement Monday that detectives received a tip about the Craigslist ad, suggesting mothers drop off any unwanted baby in a “baby box.”

Rodriguez says an investigation found that the 47-year-old woman placed the ad to get a baby for her 14-year-old daughter. Rodriguez says the woman said her daughter wanted a baby and would find a way to get one, so she decided to help.

Police say the daughter faces juvenile charges related to the ad.
