Authorities say Garza was also in the process of selling her two daughters, ages 2 and 3.

A Texas family is eager to be reunited with three young children who's mom sold them, according to authorities.

According to the arrest report, Garza said that she and his male friend had taken a loan to buy the drug and sold the child to repay it. "For it to be happening here in Corpus Christi is what's the scary thing".

Department of Public Safety agents executed a drug search warrant in Corpus Christi and located the 7-year-old.

Jail records obtained by the local NBC affiliate revealed the boy was sold to two men.

Garza is also associated with the drug trade.

Garza's bond has been set at $100,000.

Garza is charged with sale or purchase of a child, which is a third degree felony. They are extremely distraught about this incident, especially the boy's father.

The case remains under investigation.

"The Corpus Christie Collar Times" told that woman said to the investigators that she had bought the boy for two and a half thousand dollars.
