In Holly Hill on Thursday morning, a guy stole a car with a toddler inside, but when he fled, the youngster was released in another area of the city, according to police.
According to Holly Hill Police Chief Jeff Miller, the 2-year-old was recovered unharmed and was reunited with his parents.
The culprit, who looks to be a teenager, is being sought by police. Miller said that he is at large and driving a 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan with the Florida license plate AJ79FA.
Miller claimed that the incident happened when the mother of the child drove up to the child’s grandmother’s house in the 200 block of Clifton Avenue and quickly raced inside.
With the engine running, the woman left the 2-year-old son safely buckled in a car seat in the back of the car.
At that point, the suspect stole the vehicle, according to Miller.
