Authorities arrested a Florida woman on Friday on charges that she tried to sell her 12-week-old grandson.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested 45-year-old Patty Bigbee of Holly Hill, Florida. Investigators said they arrested her at the scene of the would-be transaction when she met with a buyer in Daytona Beach.

The investigation began in October, when Bigbee approached an unidentified "third party," offering to sell her grandson for $75,000.

Investigators say the buyer negotiated the price of the baby to $30,000, which Bigbee agreed to accept. FDLA agents nabbed the woman and turned the baby over to the Department of Children and Families.

Apparently, the baby's mother is currently in prison on unrelated charges.

Authorities say the baby showed no outward signs of neglect or abuse and is doing well.
