ZACHARY - A vehicle was stolen from outside a business in East Baton Rouge with a sleeping two-year-old still inside.

The Zachary Police Department first shared details of the crime on Tuesday morning. The department said the vehicle had been left running in a parking lot Friday, Nov. 26 while the driver briefly ran inside of the UPS Store on Main Street around 11:30 a.m. 

According to police, the vehicle was recovered shortly afterward at the 1400 block of Plank Road with the child still asleep inside.
