VIDEO: Car thief returns baby


An unusual sight, a thief, desperate to return something that’s not his.   Surveillance video shows a man walking to a car left running with the keys in the ignition.  He takes off, but a surprise in the back seat sent him running to a nearby store.

“He just kept saying, take this baby, take this baby”, said Michelle Ashby.

Ashby works for West Palm Beach, Florida gas station where the man is caught on camera struggling to get the carrier out of the backseat.  He rushed to the door and signaled the clerk to call police and placed the baby on the gas station floor.  The clerk, on the phone with 911, calmly placed the 5-month-old child behind the counter, unharmed.
