Broward deputy finds stolen SUV with baby safe inside


MARGATE, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say that after activating an Amber Alert, a Broward sheriff’s deputy found a stolen SUV with a baby boy inside.

Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion tells local media that a woman stepped out of her Nissan Murano on Saturday afternoon to speak with the manager of a business in Margate. The woman left her two children – a 10-year-old girl and a 2-month old baby – in the car.

As the woman was standing on the sidewalk next to the running SUV, a man jumped inside. The girl managed to leave the SUV and tried to grab her brother, but was unsuccessful.

The man drove away with the infant still in the back seat. The baby was found safe about three hours later in the abandoned SUV.
