Jan. 19--A man left a baby inside a car after stealing items from a FedEx truck Wednesday in the Fuller Park neighborhood, police said.
The delivery driver was eating in a Wendy's restaurant about 10 a.m. when at least one person broke into the truck parked outside, took several FedEx boxes and placed them on the roof of a building near the eatery, 242 W. Garfield Blvd., police said.
A passerby spotted the thief or thieves and called police with a description of the car the thief fled in and officers spotted it near the 5300 block of South Princeton Avenue.
As officers tried to stop the car, the driver stopped and fled on foot. Officers gave chase and arrested him but when they went up to his car, they spotted a 1-year-old in the back seat, police said.
The child was unharmed and charges are pending against the driver.
