Two-Month-Old Child Taken in Stolen Vehicle NR10500mg

Los Angeles:  On October 25, 2010, at about 8:30 a.m., Hollenbeck Area Patrol Officers were called to the  intersection of Spence Street and Whittier Boulevard where a 2-month-old child was taken in a stolen vehicle.  

The child’s grandfather, who was driving a 2000 Red Ford Expedition, had stopped to pick up a newspaper from the corner newsstand.  He had left the vehicle running with the child in the car.  As he was returning to his vehicle, a 16-year-old female dressed in a high-school uniform entered the vehicle and drove away with the child.

Police, along with the Air Unit, responded and immediately saturated the area in search of the child and vehicle.  Approximately 10 minutes later, the vehicle was located on 6th Street west of Esperanza.  Police took the child into custody, unharmed, and the child was immediately reunited with his family.

The female suspect had left the area. Due to the proximity of the vehicle to a nearby school, Police immediately checked the school, however, were unable to locate a suspect.  The criminal investigation is continuing.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Hollenbeck Auto Detective Mullder at 213-224-0106.  During non-business hours or weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800)-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most key pads) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
