http://www.kpho.com/news/22232687/detail.htmlThe Maricopa Sheriff’s Department says Tanya Nareau, 33, offered to give to her daughter one of the girl’s relatives in exchange for a gun.
The girl’s family members tell CBS 5 that Nareau originally made the offer during a phone call last week.
They said Nareau unexpectedly showed up at the relative’s workplace Monday and handed him her daughter. He did not give her a gun.
It is unclear why Nareau wanted a gun, but she cannot legally buy or own a firearm because she is a convicted felon.
Nareau did explain why she wanted to give her daughter away, according to Maricopa Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Doug Matteson.
“She told sheriff’s deputies she felt that she couldn’t raise the daughter adequately, so she would give the daughter to someone who could,” he said.
Her daughter is 2 years old.
