Toddler's wild ride

View Comments

(AP) – A Southern California thief stole a car with a toddler inside. The girl was dropped off unharmed a short time later.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators say the thief got into the silver Honda Accord at about 6:15 a.m. Wednesday in the Artesia area and sped away.

Lt. Minh Dinh says the thief apparently then noticed the 3-year-old girl in the back seat and pulled over to let her out before driving away.

City News Service says a passer-by found the crying child standing on a sidewalk. Investigators haven’t determined why the toddler was in the car unattended. No one has been arrested yet.
