Authorities searching for car thieves in San Carlos

Hidalgo County Sheriff’s deputies are currently searching for two suspects described as Hispanic males in the area of Sharp Road and Curry Road near San Carlos, according to Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra.

The individuals are suspected of stealing a gray Kia with a 2-year-old child inside earlier Tuesday. The car and child have since been recovered unharmed.

“The mother was near a school bus picking up her other children when it happened,” Guerra said. “She stepped out to get her kids and left the car running, and then she saw two Hispanic males get in her car. We immediately had units respond to the area.”

Guerra says the department has also discovered video footage of the suspects.
