PALATKA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 30-year-old woman sold a baby boy for a 1999 Dodge Dakota truck in Kentucky and then fled to Florida.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office says Heather Ann Kaminsky was arrested July 18 at a Winn-Dixie supermarket. She has been extradited back to Kentucky where she'll face charges of human trafficking.

Authorities say Kaminsky sold the baby shortly after his birth in January.

Deputies say the couple accused of trading their truck for the baby - Jeremy and Jamiee Brown of Laurel, Ky. - were arrested July 12 and also face human trafficking charges.

According to deputies, Kaminsky sold the truck for $800 and some methamphetamines.

Deputies say Kaminsky previously lived in Florida and the Department of Children and Families had taken two other children from her.
