(Newser) – An, er, innovative take on the adoption process: A Kentucky couple has been arrested and charged with human trafficking after allegedly trading their truck for a friend's baby. Jamie and Jeremy Brown are accused of giving their truck to Heather Kaminskey, who'd recently given birth to a boy, police say. The couple kept the newborn healthy, authorities note. Officials are now looking for Kaminskey, who they say may be in Florida. She reportedly followed the baby-for-truck trade with a truck-for-meth transaction, in which she also received $800, WKYT reports.
