A couple from California was arrested when they tried to give their children money and drugs, according to police statements.
Last Thursday, police responded to a call for alleged child abuse in a home.
It is not clear what exactly led the citizens to call the authorities.
When police reached the point, they arrested parents, 38-year-old Vincente Calogero, and 32-year-old Sarah Nilson.
Calogero and Nilson were trying to give or sell their two sons. The suspects were transferred to Lancaster Station, where they are now detained for sick-treatment, child neglect, and substance abuse.
