Police Capture Car Theft Suspect, Find Kids After Wild Chase

The woman flagged down a passing police car and reported the theft. Officers spotted the Camry on the 1500 block of Sellers Street, about a mile away from where it was stolen. A police aviation unit began to follow it as it sped off.

As police placed McDonald in custody, they realized the children were not inside the car. McDonald told police he dropped the children off along the 4700 block of Darrah Street, according to Small.

The ordeal began Wednesday around 10 p.m. when a 28-year-old woman stopped by her friend's house on the 1000 block of Van Kirk Street to drop something off. The woman parked her white 2010 Toyota Camry in front of the home with the engine running and her two sons, ages 6 and 1, in the backseat.
