This car thief got way more than he bargained for when he decided to steal a car! When he realized there was a baby in the backseat, he stopped at a gas station, where he handed the baby over to an employee while yelling, “Take the baby! Take the baby!”
Footage at the gas station shows the suspect pulling up to the gas station in the early morning. He is seen unstrapping the baby from the car seat in the back of the car, running towards the gas station to hand the baby over and then back to the car, leaving the scene.
Michelle Ashby, who owns a restaurant at the gas station, couldn’t believe what happened! She said the man knocked on the door and handed the baby over before running back to the car.
The clerk of the station reported the suspect being scared and in a hurry when he knocked on the door. It turns out that the car was stolen from another gas station down the road, while the mother was outside the car, where her 5 month old was in the back seat.
Employees at the gas station immediately called 911 and the baby was reunited with his frantic mother. The abandoned car was also found shortly after the baby snatch, but the suspect was nowhere to be found.
