Cops arrest suspect for stealing car with kid inside

Posted: Updated:

It took a few weeks, but persistence paid off for Plano police.

Officers arrested a man for allegedly stealing a vehicle that had a 10-year-old child, and a family pet, inside.

Torrez Willis was arrested Friday and charged with kidnapping.

Police say Willis stole the car in early March from outside a business on Preston Road.

The child's father told officers he left the vehicle running.

Police say Willis ditched the car at a nearby gas station a short time later.

Neither the child, nor pet, was hurt.

Willis is booked in the Collin County jail. Bond is set at one-hundred-thousand dollars.
