Missouri Car Theft Doesn't Wake Sleeping Children
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - Two children who were sleeping in a car when it was stolen from an Independence motel were still snoozing when officers rescued them.
The Kansas City Star reports that the car was stolen early Sunday while the mother was checking into America's Best Value Inn. She had left the children unattended with the keys in the car.
Shortly after midnight, Independence police alerted law enforcement agencies across the area. Kansas City police officers called about 45 minutes after recovering the car. The children were still asleep and unharmed in the car.
They were reunited with their mother.
Independence detectives continue to investigate at the motel.
