TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Police Dept. can breathe a sigh of relief as they continue investigating who stole a car with a baby still in it’s car seat just before 7:00 p.m. Monday evening. About two hours later the car with the baby still in it’s seat was located abandoned at a park across town.
At 9:04 p.m. TPD state, “The child was located and is now safe. Thanks to the outstanding efforts of a Tulsa citizen we received a tip that the car was parked at B.C. Franklin Park. The suspect abandoned the car with the child still in the back seat and officers rushed the area and got the child out of the car. We are processing the car for evidence.”
EARLIER INFORMATION: “We need your help! At 6:50 pm we had a car similar to the one in the picture stolen from the store at 2215 N Harvard. THERE WAS AN 11 MONTH OLD STILL IN THE CAR WHEN STOLEN.
