Police: Car stolen with child inside

McAllen police detained a person of interest after a vehicle was stolen Monday afternoon with a child inside.

The vehicle, which was reportedly stolen near the 700 block of north Bicentennial Boulevard at about 3:22 p.m., was recovered shortly thereafter, McAllen police Lt. Joel Morales said.

Morales declined to give any information about the child, only saying the child was not harmed. It’s unclear if the person who allegedly stole the vehicle is in any way connected to the owner of the car.

Police will release more information as it becomes available, Morales said.
