Man Arrested In Car Theft, Baby Abandonment

Police Car LightsST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – St. Paul police have arrested a 34-year-old man in last week’s car theft and abandonment of an 11-month-old boy who was in the back seat.

Officers arrested the suspect without incident at a business Wednesday. He’s being held in the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center on an unrelated warrant.

Police say they’ve received several tips from the public since the Dec. 22 theft. The car was stolen from St. Paul’s East Side with the infant strapped in a car seat. The boy was found alive near a garbage can behind a Maplewood apartment complex.

Investigators believe the suspect wanted to steal the car and sell it. It’s unclear if he knew the baby was in the back seat.

Prosecutors are reviewing the case. Police are not ruling out additional arrests.
