A 15-Year-Old is Arrested for Stealing a Car in Albany with a Toddler Inside

A 15-year-old from Schenectady has been charged with stealing an SUV and endangering the welfare of a child.

The carjacking incident happened in Albany on Tuesday morning.

The unlocked SUV was parked outside the Family Dollar at 484 Central Avenue with the motor running and a two-year-old girl sleeping in the back seat.

The child was unharmed and the van was located by an Albany police detective about four blocks from the scene of the carjacking.

Albany Police say that at this time, the mother does not face charges. Leaving an unattended vehicle running is against the law.
