KANSAS CITY, Ks. — A Kansas City man is accused of trying to sell a 2-year-old on Craigslist, according to KCTV.

Zachary Taylor Garrett, 22, has been charged with attempted rape of a child under the age of 14.

He also faces charges of an off grid person felony, attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child under 14 years of age and an off-grid person felony and aggravated child endangerment.

The charges come after Garrett allegedly responded to a post made by someone else. The response allegedly offered to provide a 2-year-old child to undercover agents for the purpose of sex.

According to the Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office, the investigation began weeks ago in Springfield, MO. Garrett was arrested on the 3300 block of North 59th Terrace in KCK.

Prosecutors have set the bond amount at $500,000.

No court date has been set.
