A man stole a car this Sunday, January 23 in Roullet-Saint-Estèphe, in Charente, without immediately realizing that a 4-year-old girl was asleep in the back.
A father was about to hit the road with his daughter, installed in the car. He returned quickly inside the home to look for his mobile phone, and on returning, could only find that the car had disappeared and his daughter with it, reports France Bleu La Rochelle.
Discovering that he was not alone in the vehicle, the thief finally brought the car back twenty minutes later, “thirty meters from the home” of the girl. Asleep on the back seat, she “did not realize anything”, according to the gendarmes of Angoulême.
An investigation was however opened to find the thief. Dog handlers and criminal investigation technicians were mobilized to comb through the car.
