Posted: Dec 19, 2017 10:35 AM

Los Angeles County authorities say two parents have been arrested on suspicion of trying to sell their own kids for drugs.

Sheriff's officials say deputies responded last week to a home in Lancaster following reports of possible child abuse.

According to the Associated Press, investigators at the scene determined 38-year-old Vincente Calogero and 32-year-old Sarah Nilson had attempted to exchange their two sons for money or drugs.

Calogero and Nilson could face charges including felony child endangerment, child neglect, and being under the Influence of a controlled substance. It wasn't immediately known if they have attorneys.

The boys are in custody of the Department of Children and Family Services personnel. Officials didn't say how old the kids are.

A trough of low pressure is moving over northern California this afternoon and tonight, and that will increase our wind speed and raise our area's fire danger even further. The wind will be weaker Thursday, but the smoke will get worse.
