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.
