Driver of Stolen Vehicle in Labor, 7 Children Inside
RAMSEY, Minn. (AP) - Police in a Twin Cities suburb say they found a driver in labor and seven children, some with mouths taped shut, in a vehicle officers suspected was stolen.
Authorities say an officer stopped the vehicle in Ramsey just after midnight Tuesday for a traffic violation and learned it had been stolen. The woman behind the wheel was in labor and taken to a hospital.
Ramsey Police Chief Jeff Katers says three adults were detained, including one man arrested for possessing a stolen vehicle. Police say the children in the vehicle seemed unresponsive and were awakened by officers. Some had packaging tape over their mouths. The children were checked by paramedics and released to family members after they were questioned.
