DALLAS - The authorities arrested an Oregon man accused of advertising that an infant was for sale.

The Salem Police Department says Patrick Lee Ryan of Dallas recently posted the item on Craiglist, an online network of classified ads and forums. The listing gave a name for interested parties to contact for further information.

Lt. Dave Okada says the listing included the name of a real person, but that person had no involvement with the ad.
