Car thief steals SUV with 10-month old baby inside
Police have apprehended a car thief who sped away from a West Seattle convenience store Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 27) after stealing an SUV with a 10-month-old child inside.
The suspect fled the store – located in the 1600 block of SW Holden Street – in a black Ford Edge SUV just after 3:15 p.m., and headed south toward White Center.
Nineteen minutes after police began searching for the suspect, King County Sheriff’s Deputies and Seattle police found the SUV and the child – who was okay – parked near 8th Ave SW and SW 99th Street, near Dubsea Coffee:
