A Chickasha man is in jail on allegations of attempting to sell two children over the internet for sex.

According to Assistant District Attorney Lesley March, the suspect, Jason Burns, 25, has reportedly admitted to having a conversation in an internet chat room where he promised to procure a five-year-old and a one-year-old for sex to a New York man.

The price? $5,000.

March said the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children picked up on the possible transaction and alerted New York State Police.

The investigation expanded to include the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Chickasha Police Department.

Following up on information, Chickasha Detective Jason Maddox arrested Burns on Saturday.

March said the OSBI has seized a large amount of data and is currently sifting through it.

Formal charges are not expected to be filed until Tuesday. Burns is currently in the Grady County Jail.
