Six-month-old safe after vehicle theft

Calgary police are investigating the family of a six-month-old taken in the Monday afternoon theft of a running vehicle at Sunridge Mall.

While the vehicle and child were both recovered, the male suspect was able to make off with both because the car was unoccupied while left running.

 “We’re going to look at the totality of the situation from both sides of the equation and make sure that we respectfully deal with both sides of it,” says CPS Staff Sergeant Jeff Bell.

The alleged thief was arrested less than 300 metres from where the theft occurred.
