NORFOLK, Va. (November 18, 2015) — Police say two car thieves made an unexpected stop after stealing a vehicle Wednesday morning: They dropped an 8-year-old boy off at school after they discovered him in the backseat.

Norfolk police spokesman Daniel Hudson says the boy was sitting in his mother’s car in her employer’s parking lot when the men got inside. The keys were in the ignition.

Hudson says the boy told police that the men asked him which school he attended and then took him there.

The mother called police after she returned to the parking lot and found the car and her son were missing.

Police say they found the boy unharmed at school, and the car was abandoned about 3 miles away.

No arrests have been made.
