California parents accused of trying to sell kids for drugs

Posted: Updated:
LANCASTER, Calif. -

Los Angeles County authorities say two parents have been arrested on suspicion of trying to sell their two sons for drugs.
  
Sheriff's officials said Monday that deputies responded last week to a home in the Mojave Desert city of Lancaster following reports of possible child abuse.
  
Officials say investigators determined 38-year-old Vincente Calogero and 32-year-old Sarah Nilson attempted to exchange their two sons for money or drugs.
  
Calogero and Nilson could face charges including felony child endangerment, child neglect, and being under the influence of a controlled substance. It wasn't immediately known if they have attorneys.
  
The boys are in the custody of the county's Department of Children and Family Services.
  
Officials did not provide the ages of the boys.

    US new-home sales rose 3.5 percent in August

    Sales of new U.S. homes climbed 3.5 percent in August, snapping a two-month decline as buying surged in the pricey Northeast and West housing markets.    The Commerce Department said Wednesday that newly built homes sold at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 629,000 last month. Sales of new homes have advanced 6.9 percent this year. Still, rising costs and higher mortgage rates have tempered some of the enthusiasm from would-be buyers.
