PHOENIX – A woman is accused of trying to trade her young daughter for a gun.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 33-year-old Tanya Nareau for allegedly trying to trade her 2-year-old daughter for a gun.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in the 9200 block of Apache Trail after receiving a tip that a woman gave her child away so that she could get a gun in exchange.
While at the home, deputies talked to a family friend who had the toddler and told deputies Nareau had traded her 2-year-old girl to him in exchange for a gun.
Nareau reportedly called the family friend and stated she still wanted the gun. The suspect reportedly also said the family friend would “do a better job in raising the child than she would.”
The suspect also told her friend she is unable to purchase a gun herself because she is prohibited by law to do so.
Nareau is at the Fourth Avenue Jail and faces charges of unlawful sale of a child and solicitation to commit possession of weapon by prohibited possessor.
