Child Taken Into Protective Custody After Shoplifting Incident

A chase after a shoplifter on the West Side caused a bit of a stir in the Fairvale Boulevard area around 2pm yesterday. 

Sergeant Jay Henderson explains employees at the hardware store saw the man stealing---and when he left the store, they got in a car and chased him onto Greystone Terrace, where they boxed in his vehicle.

The man tried to flee and was picked up in the backseat of another vehicle a short distance away.

He left a 2 year old baby and an intoxicated woman in the car. He's now facing charges, and the baby was taken into protective custody by the Department of Social Development.
