Police: Teen arrested for stealing car with a baby inside

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested after police say he stole a car with a baby inside.

The Sun Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1TYKl0A) that fingerprints led investigators to the teenage boy from Pompano Beach, who was arrested Friday.

The 10-month-old girl was found safe inside the abandoned car after an Amber Alert was issued on Monday.

Police say the car was stolen Monday outside a Fort Lauderdale laundromat where the child’s mother Yareli Velasco was doing laundry.

Police found the baby in the abandoned car about three hours later.

Authorities did not release details of the arrest and the suspect is not being identified because he is a juvenile.
