THIS is the dramatic moment a mum was arrested for allegedly selling EIGHT of her kids for just £31.84 to buy drugs.

Marilza Medeiros da Conceicao was nicked in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, after reportedly trying to flog her offspring to secure a fix.

The mum, from Sao Pedro da Aldeia, was said to have been planning to swap eight of her ten children for "narcotics", police said.

She was taken into custody in August last year for "promising or carrying out the delivery of a child to a third party, upon payment or reward."

Her barbaric bartering was only exposed when cops discovered she had already sold her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter in April 2020.

The tot was allegedly given to a family in Saquarema, Região dos Lagos region for the equivalent of just £27.60.

Elizangela da Silva Pacheco, 42, who allegedly bought the baby, also faced criminal consequences over the trade.

According to local media, she was ordered to carry out community service for six months.

She was also forced to pay three months' minimum wages to a local charity that helps to educate children.

Reports claim that after her arrest, Marilza confessed to cops that she had arranged the exchange in a bid to earn cash to buy drugs.
