— -- A man and woman in Tennessee were arrested last week after they attempted to sell their 5-month-old infant online.

The two were caught in a sting operation that ended on Friday when they exchanged the baby with state agents for the cash.

Cain and Greer were arrested immediately and taken into custody at the Greene County Jail in Greeneville, according to the report.

Each is being held on a $150,000 bond, and they are scheduled to appear in court during the first week of April.

The baby is in state custody. It was not immediately clear if the couple had legal representation.
