COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Two young children were reunited with their parents Sunday night, after a truck was stolen while they were inside.
Police confirmed the incident took place in Commerce City Sunday night, when a father left a truck running and unlocked while he visited a liquor store near the intersection of Vasquez Boulevard and 60th Avenue around 7:30 p.m. The children’s mother was reportedly at a Wal-Mart nearby.
When the father returned to the parking lot, he found the truck and the children had both been taken. About an hour later, someone called 911, telling police where to find the truck and the children.
Neither of the children were hurt, and both were reunited with their parents shortly after they were discovered.
Suspect details in the case were not being released Monday morning due to the ongoing investigation. Police have also not said if the children’s parents will face any charges.
